A number line is a graphical representation of numbers on a straight horizontal line. All numbers placed at equal intervals along the entire length of the line.

Here are some of the reasons to use number lines:

- Number lines are perfect for showing the relationships between numbers.

- Number lines are useful to teach counting, comparing, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and even fractions.

- Research indicates that number lines aid in developing mental math skills.

A number line is a great way for students to visualize starting with a number and then moving forward or backward on the number line to the answer. Working effectively with the number line model, students can develop powerful intuitive strategies for single- and multiple-digit addition and subtraction.

A printable number line is a great resource for teaching elementary math. Teachers can use number lines to help students understand relations among numbers, represent and solve addition and subtraction problems.
