Understand a rational number as a point on the number line.

Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grade to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates.

a. Opposites [6-NS6a]

Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 1 on the number line

Recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself, e.g., -(-3) = 3, and that 0 is its own opposite.

b. Signs [6-NS6b]

Understand signs of numbers in ordered pairs as indicating locations in quadrants of the coordinate plane

Recognize that when two ordered pairs differ only by signs, the locations of points are related by reflections across one or both axes

c. Find and position... [6-NS6c]

Find and position integers and other rational numbers on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram

Find and position pairs of integers and other rational numbers on a coordinate plane
