6th Grade MAT Targeted Standards Domain (NS) The Number System Cluster: Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers

MAT-06.NS.07 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.

b. Write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in real-world contexts.

c. 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 real-world.

d. Distinguish comparisons of absolute value from statements about order.
