Throughout my Algebra classes, the definition of whole numbers were inconsistent. First, I was taught that the whole numbers were a subset of real numbers including all natural numbers and zero (non-negative integers), then, I was told that whole numbers included all integers (...-3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3...).

Is there a universally accepted definition of the set of whole numbers?
