So, is zero and even number? I say yes, because it falls between 2 even numbers, can be divided into two equal parts, and numbers that end in zero are all even. But, I can't find any information about zero when teaching even numbers. Sorry if this is a dumb question, but kids want to know!

From the "Ask Dr. Math" Forum (www.mathforum.org): Zero is an even number. An integer n is called *even* if there exists an integer m such that n = 2m, and *odd* if n+1 is even. From this, it is clear that 0 = (2)(0) is even. The reason for this definition is so that we have the property that every integer is either even or odd.

Even numbers are numbers which have no remainder when divided by 2. Zero is divisible by 2. So zero is an even number. It's neither positive nor negative, but it's even.

Even- (consider that when counting, every other number is even-2, 4, 6, 8...1 is odd, the number before it is even...0). Zero comes between 2 odd numbers (-1 and 1) so it's even....

On a side note...I've always thought either zero or the number 1 would make an interesting informative speech. No takers yet though...
