This article is written for middle school students to learn about integers in the real world. It includes three examples as well as explanations on comparing and computing integers. I use this in station rotations on understanding and ordering positive and negative numbers. A graphic organizer is included to use at the station. Reading and summarizing this article has been a great way to get students comfortable with integers.

CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.C.7a Interpret statements of inequality as statements about the relative position of two numbers on a number line diagram. For example, interpret –3 > –7 as a statement that –3 is located to the right of –7 on a number line oriented from left to right.
CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.C.7b Write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in real-world contexts. For example, write –3 oC > –7 oC to express the fact that –3 oC is warmer than –7 oC.
