Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free Negative Numbers worksheet of 44 questions and answers
Negative numbers are numbers that are below zero such as -1, -2, … etc. Negative numbers are denoted by a minus sign in front of the number.
Negative integers are shown on the left of the zero on a number line and a negative number line can be a useful tool when comparing negative numbers and ordering negative numbers. Negative number lines can also help us when we are learning to calculate with negative numbers.
We can add, subtract, multiply and divide negative numbers and there are specific rules for this. When adding and subtracting negative numbers, we find the starting point and move up the number line for addition and down for subtraction, in the same way we do when calculating with positive numbers. When multiplying and dividing negative numbers, multiplying two negative numbers gives a positive answer and multiplying a negative number by a positive number gives a negative answer.
