In this lesson, we will learn:

- To compare integers—positive and negative whole numbers—up to millions place values
- To order a list of integers—positive and negative whole numbers—up to millions place values

- When
**comparing numbers**, we use the symbols:

- For
**integers**, use a**number line**to understand which numbers are bigger or smaller

- Smaller numbers are to the left; bigger numbers are to the right
- Ex. Look at the pairs of
**opposite numbers:**-5 < -2 vs. 5 > 2

- For
**negative numbers**: the bigger the negative, the smaller the value (i.e. more negative means less value)

- The same rules apply for comparing multi-digit integers:
- Ex. Compare the number -5000 with: 6000, 5000, 0, and -6000

- -5000 < 6000
- -5000 < 5000
- -5000 < 0
- -5000 < 6000

- There are two ways to order a list of numbers, including multi-digit integers:
- From
**least to greatest**(smallest to biggest) *most negative to least negative*- From
**greatest to least**(biggest to smallest) *least negative to most negative*- Ex. -6000 < -5000 < 0 < 5000 < 6000

**Comparing integers on a number line**

Draw dots on the number line for each integer. Circle the number that is bigger.a)-4 and 2b)-153 and -163c)-72 000 and -78 000 - 2.
**More or less negative integers**

Circle the integer that is more negative. Write "less" or "greater" under each number.a)-12 vs. -13b)-2867 vs. -2495c)-3,829,001 vs. -3,840,756 - 3.
**Ordering multi-digit integers: least to greatest**

Order the integers from least to greatest. Use the less than symbol (<).a)-14, 0, -25b)-956, -487, -1023c)-51 247, -41 247, -61 247d)-418,754,629 , -147,856,023 , -482,739,165 - 4.
**Ordering multi-digit integers: greatest to least**

Order the integers from greatest to least. Use the greater than symbol (>).a)-5, 1, -3b)-1747, -7417, -4177c)-985,176 , -593,229 , -697,047d)-34,867,921 , -43,532,107 , -33,124,689 - 5.
**Writing a multi-digit integer within a range**

Write an integer between each pair of integers in the following scenario:a)One year, the weather averages in the month of October had the highest temperature of 6°C and the lowest temperature of -8°C.b)During a deep-sea exploring expedition, a diver was at 157 feet below sea level (-157 ft). A few minutes later, the diver was pulled up and is now at 132 feet below sea level (-132 ft).c)There are no popular movies in theatres this week. On Monday, the theatre company reported a loss of -$127,613. By Wednesday, there was a total loss of -$540,859 for the week already.
