Investigate everyday situations that use positive and negative whole numbers and zero. Locate and represent these numbers on a number line (ACMNA124) * understanding that whole numbers can be positive and negative and continue indefinitely in both directions * investigating everyday situations that use positive and negative integers, such as temperatures, to understand how the positive numbers (whole numbers, fractions, decimals and percentages) can be extended to include negative numbers * using number lines to position and order positive and negative integers around zero * solving everyday additive problems involving positive and negative integers without developing formal rules for the operations (for example using a number line and counting to find the resulting outside temperature if it is 5°C at 7pm and drops by 8°C overnight)
