**Integers
By: Lynn Coupal**

Integers are defined as the set of all positive and negative whole numbers. In other words, {....,-3, -2, -1, 0 , 1 , 2 , 3,....} is the set of all integers.

Integers are involved in many applications that we use in our everyday lives. For example: When one reads the temperature from an external thermometer.

Throughout our mathematical endeavors in the educational system, we learn the many uses for integers and their applications.

The following pages are lesson plans which were completed in this unit.
