Negative Numbers (Year 5)
The temperature is 4o. If it falls 8o it will become -4o.

Negative Numbers (Year 5)

In Year 5, the third year of KS2 Maths, you'll explore special numbers called negatives. Imagine counting backwards on a number line! With these minus numbers, like -10, you can fill in gaps and solve tricky problems. It's like a cool maths adventure!

Negative numbers have a special sign (it's a minus!). They're used for things like measuring temperature and showing when something is lost, like owing money. On number lines, they go the other way - like a secret code: -5, -6, -7, -8... How cool is that?

Test your brain with a fun quiz about negative numbers! Let's see how much you know about this magical KS2 Maths world.
