Wall Wisher Integer Mathematics

Temperature values are just one example of positive and negative numbers that are often called "Integers".
In a week or so, Big Passy will be teaching some 8th graders all about Integers, and so it was time to build another WallWisher website. Here is an iframe window into this brand new "Integers8" web site:
If you would like to see the above wall full size, then click the link below:

If you would like to know how to build your own Wall of links to items that all follow a particular theme, then check out our previous blog post on this here:
Integers are important when we examine opposing forces. A classic example is rally car driving where the turning force of the car needs to be negated by the grip of the tires:

This traction balance is often a very delicate mathematical equation to replicate in computer games.
Here is a very "Hill Billy" Introduction to Integers, that is a bit left of center:
Here are some SlideShare presentations that we found on the web about Integers:
Introduction to Incredible Integers:
Adding and Subtracting Integers:
Multiplying and Dividing Integers:
One item we have included on our wall is this great little Integers song:
So hopefully some positive outcomes will result from all of this Integers stuff.
And speaking of outcomes that we need here at Passy World:
