What do you know about negative numbers?
Any number below zero is a negative number.
They can be whole numbers (integers), decimals or fractions.
Negative numbers always have a minus sign in front, like this:
-8, -12.6, -2/3
Numbers above zero do not have a sign in front of them.
This is how we know they're not negative.
Look at the number line below:
The smallest numbers are furthest left, so you can see that -2 is bigger than -4
Let's practise with some questions.
