7th Grade MAT Targeted Standards
Domain (NS) The Number System
Cluster: Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers

Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram.

MAT-07.NS.01.b Understand p + q as the number located a distance |q| from p, in the positive or negative direction depending on whether q is positive or negative. Show that a number and its opposite have a sum of 0 (are additive inverses). Interpret sums of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.

Student Learning Targets:

Knowledge Targets

  • I can show that a number and its opposite are additive inverses.

Reasoning Targets

  • I can represent addition of rational numbers on a vertical or horizontal number line using the sign of the value being added to determine direction.
  • I can describe sums of rational numbers in real world contexts.




 Positive, Negative, Opposite, Additive Inverse, Absolute Value, Integer, Rational Numbers.
