Comparing & Ordering Rational Numbers

1. Comparing & Ordering Rational Numbers

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to look at any rational number and compare it with any other rational number. Learn what you need to do so that you know which number is greater or lesser than another.

Graphing Rational Numbers on a Number Line

2. Graphing Rational Numbers on a Number Line

Number lines have many uses both in mathematics and everyday life. This lesson will teach you how to graph numbers on a number line and give real-world examples of how to use number lines.

Additive Inverse Property: Definition & Examples

3. Additive Inverse Property: Definition & Examples

In this lesson, we will examine the additive inverse of a given number. We will also learn about the additive inverse of a variable and how it can be represented graphically. Finally, we will explore the most widely employed application of the additive inverse.

Adding Integers: Rules & Examples

4. Adding Integers: Rules & Examples

In this lesson, we will learn about adding integers or signed numbers. Using the number line and idea of absolute value, we will see that the rules used to add them are simply an extension of the rules of basic arithmetic.

Subtracting Integers: Rules & Examples

5. Subtracting Integers: Rules & Examples

In this lesson, we will cover definitions, rules, and examples for subtracting integers. We'll also provide some helpful tips for dealing with tricky math problems.

Distributing Positive and Negative Signs

6. Distributing Positive and Negative Signs

It's not just numbers and variables that get distributed. Positive and negative signs can, too. In this lesson, we'll learn how to distribute positive and negative signs correctly.

Multiplying Integers: Rules & Examples

7. Multiplying Integers: Rules & Examples

In this lesson, we will discuss what numbers are included in the integers and how to multiply them. We will deal with 1-, 2-, and 3-digit numbers as well as negatives and positives. There are some definitions included as well as a quiz at the end.

Dividing Integers: Rules & Terminology

8. Dividing Integers: Rules & Terminology

In this lesson, we will learn how to divide integers or signed numbers. Determining the correct sign of the answer is a very simple but important step in these calculations. We will also learn the role of zero in division of integers.

Arithmetic Calculations with Signed Numbers

9. Arithmetic Calculations with Signed Numbers

Signed numbers are often referred to as integers. Integers include both positive and negative numbers. In this lesson, you will learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide integers.
