Integers and Absolute Value


Thinking above and beyond what was taught.


The student will:

  • Write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in real-world contexts. (6.NS.C.7b)

  • Interpret absolute value as a magnitude for a positive and negative quantity in a real-world situation. (6.NS.C.7c)

  • Distinguish comparisons of absolute value from statements about order. (6.NS.C.7d)


The student will perform basic processes such as:

  • Use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in a real world context explaining the meaning of zero in each situation. (6.NS.C.5)

  • Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line. (6.NS.C.6a)

  • Recognize that the opposite of a number is the number itself. (6.NS.C.6a)

  • Find and position rational numbers, including integers, on a number line. (6.NS.C.6c)

  • Interpret statements of inequality as statements about relative position of two numbers on a number line diagram. (6.NS.C.7a)
