Directed Numbers Measuring instruments and integers There are many applications for directed numbers. Thermometers are a great example because the temperature can go below zero. The temperature at midday was 20 degrees Celsius. During the afternoon, the temperature rose 4 degrees before falling 9 degrees in the late afternoon. (i) Shade in the thermometer showing the late afternoon temperature.

Overall change =+4cC - 9cC =-5cC Digital scales need to use directed numbers to calculate changes in mass. Use this information to calculate the mass of olives purchased by Maria at her local Deli: Maria asked for 500 g of olives. After first weighing 575 g of olives, the Deli owner took out 98 g and then put back 46 g. The directed number sentence for this is: + 575 g - 98 g + 46 g Increase = + and decrease = - ` Maria purchased + 575 g - 98 g + 46 g = 523 g of olives If the first term is positive, we usually don't write in the plus sign.

Directed Numbers Magnitude and direction of integers Integers are positive (+) and negative (-) whole numbers, including zeros. They tell us the size (magnitude) and direction of values associated with change. -1 It is important to first decide what will be the positive direction. +3 • If up ( ) is positive, then the opposite direction down ( ) is negative • If right ( ) is positive, then the opposite direction left ( ) is negative • If hotter is positive (+), then the opposite colder is negative (-) , ER ST , NEGATIVE , CE DU E, COOLER, S EAS OU CR TH DE , BE LO RE INCREASE, W AR ER, ME OV R, R, INK, REVERSE SHR , R, LESS, SLOW ER OSE , CL FURTHER, M E, OR OV E, AB FA POSITIVE , ST WE W, D, G EAST, ROW, F OR H, T WA R R NO CEND, LOWE R , DES UN DE R RA, ASCEND , EXT HI GH E These are some other words usually associated with positive and negative directed numbers Only negative numbers must have the sign written in front.

Directed Numbers Adding and subtracting directed numbers The exercises in Dr Thermos’ laboratory were examples of adding and subtracting directed numbers. Here is what happened: Addition subtraction =+1c C =-1c C When a was added, the temperature went up When a was added, the temperature went down When a was removed (Subtracted), the temperature went down When a was removed (Subtracted), the temperature went up The rules for adding and subtracting represent the same thing. Use the pattern above to calculate these: = +1 and Addition Subtraction = -1 5+ = 5 + (+1) = 5 + 1 = 6 + + = + (Same signs together means plus) 5+ = 5 + (-1) = 5 - 1 = 4 + - = - (Opposite signs together means minus) 5- = 5 - (+1) = 5 - 1 = 4 - + = - (Opposite signs together means minus) 5- = 5 - (-1) = 5 + 1 = 6 - - = + (Same signs together means plus) These rules work for all kinds of directed additions and subtractions Calculate these additions and subtractions: (i) 3 + (- 2) = 3 - 2 =1 + -=- (ii) (-2) + 3 =-2 + 3 Same as (i) but in a different order =1 (iii) 6 - (- 2.5) = 6 + 2.5 = 8.5 - -=+ (iv) (-11) - (-4) =-11 + 4 =- 7 - -=+ (v) 2 1 + (- 3) = 2 1 - 3 + - = 2 2 =- 1 2 (vi) (-12.2) + (-5.2) =-12.2 - 5.2 + - = =-17.4 (vii) 9.5 - (- 8.5) + 6 = 9.5 + 8.5 + 6 = 24 (viii) 4 1 + ^-1h - `-6 2 j = 4 1 - 1 + 6 2 3 3 3 3 = 10 Directed Numbers Mathletics Passport © 3P Learning H 4 SERIES TOPIC 21 Directed Numbers ADDING A Adding and subtracting directed numbers 1 2 22 a -5 + 3 b -4 + 7 c -4 - 4 d -11 - 8 e 1 - 16 f 16 - 22 g 6 + (-3) h 30 + (-17) i 0 + (-8) j -4 + (-5) k -10 + (-19) l 13 - (-5) m 20 - (-21) n -18 - (-6) o -15 - (-26) a 4-8+2 b -9 + 6 - 8 c -3 + 4 - 8 - 7 d - 7 + (- 4) + 13 e 2 - (-6) - 7 f 5 + (-1) - (-14) H 4 SERIES TOPIC Directed Numbers Mathletics Passport © 3P Learning ..../..... * Calculate these additions and subtractions of integers without a calculator.

Eg: +2 or -3 • Rational numbers can be written as a fraction. They include whole numbers and terminating or recurring decimals. Eg: 8, 2.3, 4.5o , 1 , 4 . 2 • Irrational numbers cannot be written as a fraction. These include decimals that keep going without following a pattern, and roots of numbers that are not perfect squares/cubes etc. Eg: 3 , 1.2938164928..., r. • Integers are whole numbers only. They are rational and have no decimal or fraction parts. Eg: 3, -4, 100. Magnitude and direction of numbers • Directed numbers are positive (+) or negative (-) whole numbers. • They show both the size (magnitude) and direction of values associated with change. • It is important to first decide what will be the positive direction. Ascending and descending order Ascending order = lowest to highest Descending order = highest to lowest Adding and subtracting directed numbers Addition Subtraction + + - + = + - = - + = - - = + (Same signs together means plus) (Opposite signs together means minus) (Opposite signs together means minus) (Same signs together means plus) Multiplying and dividing direct numbers Positive # Positive # Negative # Negative # Multiplication Division Positive = Negative = Positive = Negative = Positive Negative Negative Positive + + - # # # # +=+ -=+=-=+ (Same signs mean answer is positive) (Opposite signs mean answer is negative) (Opposite signs mean answer is negative) (Same signs mean answer is positive) The exact same rules apply because division is the opposite operation to multiplication!
