What if you were asked, what is a
number? Most people would answer this by counting 1, 2, 3, etc… But, what we
have learned is that there is much more to that. When we started our unit on
Rational Numbers we made a chart of rational and irrational numbers to
understand what we were learning. We learned that rational numbers are integers,
whole numbers, and natural numbers. Irrational numbers are numbers that can’t
be written as a fraction.

We made a chart to learn what numbers
would be classified in each group. Mrs. Gilmartin gave us a number and we had
to put it in a group according to the definition of the group.

One way positive and negative
numbers appear in the real world is money.
We made a chart to keep track or credits and debits. We did this to work
on our adding integers skills. For a debit we had to add a negative number and
a credit we had to add a positive number.

Learning about integers is
important because we use them in the real world. We use them for money,
temperature, and sea level.
