What are Negative Numbers?

Negative numbers are numbers with a value of less than zero.

They can be fractions, decimals, rational and irrational numbers.

-13, -½ , -√2, -6.4 and -123 are all negative numbers.

We have a page dedicated to learning about negative numbers below.

Comparing negative numbers

How to compare negative numbers

When you are comparing with negative numbers, everything swaps around and becomes a little more complicated!

With negative numbers, the more negative the number is, the lower its value.

As you go right along the number line, the values are increasing.

As you go left along the number line, the values are decreasing.

This means that any positive number (or even zero) will always be greater than any negative number.

Randomly Generated Negative Number Worksheets

Solving Math Problems with Negative Numbers

Negative numbers is a math topic that typically comes into play around 6th grade, and it's introduced as part of the Common Core standard at that grade level.

Negative numbers appear in a variety of situations in applied math. Often you'll see negative numbers directly in measurements, for example measuring altitude above or below sea level, temperature above or below freezing or in financial applications with positive and negative amounts of money. A more frequent, but also more abstract, application of negative numbers is dealing with rates of change. You will also encounter negative values in geometry when graphing in various quadrants on a coordinate plane. And of course, as you make your way into algebra and more advanced geometry, negative numbers play an increasingly important role.

Kids in the late primary grades should be capable of reasoning about negative integers on the number line, and this is usually a good place to start exploring the basic math operations with negative numbers. This is also a good way to start visualizing how the rules for signed numbers work. The two critical ones to learn are that a subtracting a negative number is the same as addition, and that multiplying two negative numbers yields a positive product. Most of the other behaviors of negative numbers with the conventional math operations seem to be straightforward and intuitive, but memorizing those two rules will give your grade schoolers a solid start. For more on the rules for managing signs with negative numbers for the various operations, see the respective worksheet pages for a complete discussion and tips.

The worksheets on this page introduce adding and subtracting negative numbers, as well as multiplying and dividing negative numbers. The initial sets deal with small integers before moving on to multi-digit multiplication and long division with negatives. Regardless of where you're at in your process of learning negative numbers, these worksheets will give your students plenty of practice when they need to master this often negative topic!

Understanding Positive and Negative Numbers Worksheets

What Is the Difference Between Positive and Negative Numbers? We are all familiar with the plus and minus signs. We use these signs to add values together or find the difference between two values. These same signs can also be used to tell us the nature of a quantity as well. Numbers can broadly have a positive and/or negative presence in a system. Positive numbers have a plus sign and negative numbers have a minus sign with them. If no visible sign appears in front of them, it is assumed to be positive. Let's visualize the difference with the help of a number line. Any number that moves to the right of the number line is considered to be positive. And any number that runs to the left of the number line asserts a negative tone. Let us have a clearer idea of how the number line works. When adding two numbers on a number line, we go to the first addend, and from there we walk all the way to the second addend. Thus, for 5 + (-3) we will start at 5 and go three units to the left-to reach at our result at +2. So as we can see these are simple measures of how far from 0 these values are, in one direction or another.

When Will You Be Confronted with Negative Numbers in the Real World?

When students first come across the concept of a negative value, they are quickly confused because it is a little off from where they began their concept about integers. One of the first situations where you have to contemplate the meaning of a negative value is in the realm of temperature. If you are in a country that follows the metric system, you will see it more regularly, especially if you are far away from the equator. Negative values of the Celsius scale of temperature are cold. If you are on in a system that revolves around the Fahrenheit scale, those negative temperature values are overwhelming cold. As we can quickly realize negative values are somewhat relative to the scale you use to quantify it. You will also commonly ponder negative values in situation where you are quantifying financial values. This can be when you are measuring your bank balance or overall income. In most cases that is not a good thing. Vertical elevation is another place that we see this. If we think of sea level as the zero in our scale, it is an easy concept to grasp. There are many games that students play that also have values that can reduce their overall skill. They are often used to assess penalties or faults that they endure. When we are working with students it is often helpful to bring these real world measures to light to help them understand the of overall abstract nature of this concept.

Negative Numbers Worksheets

In mathematics, a negative number is a real number that is less than zero. Negative numbers represent opposites of positive numbers. The laws of arithmetic for negative numbers ensure that the common-sense idea of an opposite is reflected in arithmetic. For example, −(−8) = 8 because the opposite of an opposite is the original value.

We use negative numbers in our daily life .

Deposits are normally represented by a positive sign whereas withdrawals are denoted by a negative sign. Negative numbers are used in weather forecasting to show the temperature of a region. Negative integers are used to show the temperature on Fahrenheit and Celsius scales.
