CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.C.7 - Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.


CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.C.7.a - Interpret statements of inequality as statements about the relative position of two numbers on a number line diagram. For 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.


CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.C.7.b - Write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in real-world contexts.For example, write -3 degrees C > -7 degrees C to express the fact that -3 degrees C is warmer than -7 degrees C.


CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.C.7.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 situation. For example, for an account balance of -30 dollars, write |-30| = 30 to describe the size of the debt in dollars.


CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.C.7.d - Distinguish comparisons of absolute value from statements about order. For example, recognize that an account balance less than -30 dollars represents a debt greater than 30 dollars.
