Integers Song

Erika discovers integers in the most fun real life situations - watch her as she snorkels by primordial creatures, borrows some money to buy a ticket to go skydiving, and put’s on her coat in sub-zero temperatures for a snowball fight! After all the fun, she flies through the land of integers as she discovers the meaning of absolute value.

Integers Song Lyrics:

The ocean level starts at zero.
I hold my breath, and down I go.
I get to negative ten feet; find I’m scared of the deep. So I swim up thirteen to get to positive three.

We will always remember
to define an integer
as a positive or negative whole number.

I try to buy a ticket to sky dive.
It costs fifteen dollars, but I only have five.
I use the five I have and borrow ten from a friend; now in dollars I’ve got negative ten.

We will always remember
to define an integer
as a positive or negative whole number.

It is so, so cold; it is five below.
I need a warm coat when it’s less than zero.
But now the temperature’s gone up eight degrees, and so it’s positive three.... still a deep freeze!

We will always remember
to define an integer
as a positive or negative whole number.

Absolute value is the value of a number if you take away the sign; for example, both nine and negative nine have an absolute value of just nine. It’s how far from zero a value is on the number line; so, to find the absolute value, just take away the sign.

We will always remember
to define an integer
as a positive or negative whole number.
