16 Integers A PowerPoint for Mrs. Becks 6th grade. MCC6.NS.5: Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values. 0 -7 Lesson EQ: How do I use positive and negative numbers to represent

quantities in real-world contexts? Negative integers have values less than zero, are to the left of zero on the number line and are always shown with a minus (-) sign. Positive integers have values greater than zero, are to the right of zero on the number line, and usually are not shown with their sign (+). So why do we need negative and positive integers? You can use integers to describe opposite

situations. For example: Positive Integers Depositing money in a checking account Elevation above sea level Any temperature above zero Yardage gained in football Negative Integers Withdrawing money

from a checking account An elevation below sea level Below zero temperatures Yardage lost in football Example 1 A sea gull is flying 25 feet above sea level and a shark is swimming 10 feet below sea level. 1) What elevation does the surface of the water represent? 2) What is the elevation of the bird?

3) What is the elevation of the fish? What is the temperature on this thermometer? What is the temperature on this thermometer?
