This video will show you exactly what integers are!
Arithmetic uses only positive numbers and zero. Algebra uses negative numbers too! This is a big deal! Since Algebra uses "integers" all the time you really need to know everything about them.
The number line is a picture of the real numbers. You will see the difference in counting numbers, whole numbers, and integers. The number line is the basis of all rules involving integers and is essential to add, subtract, multiply, and divide with positive and negative numbers.
If you've studied Algebra before you know you must know your sign rules. I will explain them to you with a number line. Once that makes sense, then the rules are nice shortcuts to know.
Remember it takes a lot of practice and that is where you come in. Work along with me as you watch the video and continue to practice until you are an expert yourself!

Welcome! I'm so glad you are here! Math help is here for you when you need it.
I believe that using these Algebra and Geometry videos will help you understand the basics of Algebra and Geometry.
Some students try very hard and still struggle to pass math. They start off strong but things quickly begin to fall apart. That happens as soon as the student becomes lost. Teenagers who find themselves in this position often let it "get away from them" before they seek help. Because Math is always a class of stepping stones, it rarely gets better without help.
I urge you to seek help from your child's teacher first. Always. These Algebra and Geometry videos can help too. You can watch...
