In this interactive from APT, position positive and negative numbers on the number line in order to determine which number is greater. In the accompanying classroom activity, students use the interactive and then play a game in which they randomly generate positive and negative integers; position them on the number line; and complete a statement of inequality or equality, using <, >, or =. To get the most from the lesson, students should have some exposure to negative integers and number lines. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
