6NS7
Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.
a. Interpret statements of inequality as statements about the relative position of two numbers on a number line diagram.
[6NS7a]
Example: Interpret 3 > 7 as a statement that 3 is located to the right of 7 on a number line oriented from left to right.
b. Write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in realworld contexts.
[6NS7b]
Example: Write 3 °C > 7 °C to express the fact that 3 °C is warmer than 7 °C
c. Absolute value
[6NS7c]
Understand the absolute value of a rational number as its distance from 0 on the number line
Interpret absolute value as magnitude for a positive or negative quantity in a realworld situation
Example: For an account balance of 30 dollars, write 30 = 30 to describe the size of the debt in dollars
d. Distinguish comparisons of absolute value from statements about order.
[6NS7d]
Example: Recognize that an account balance less than 30 dollars represents a debt greater than 30 dollars
