# Arithmetic: What are Integers (aka Whole Numbers, Counting Numbers, Natural Numbers)

Integers are a type of number that includes whole, counting, and natural numbers. This encompasses the numbers we use to count objects and their absence, including zero. In this episode of Math Camp, we learn more about integers and their properties. This year, Math Camp is all about arithmetic, where we will cover topics such as fractions, decimals, and complex numbers. These concepts will be useful in other math subjects such as algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. Join us every Thursday for a new episode!
