It can be a positive number (+7) or a negative number (-7). You can think of an integer as a "counting" number. When you count some things (like your socks) you associate each sock with an integer. 1, 2, 3, etc. Notice you cannot count "half a sock." If you need to count parts of things, you need the fractions, also called rational numbers because they are the ratio of two integers (like 3/7). Anyway, that's another story....
