This 18-slide PowerPoint presentation introduces students to the concept of absolute value. Material is presented that would satisfy Common Core standard CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.C.7.C. The definition of absolute value is based on the distance from the number to zero on a number line. Magnitude is defined and discussed in detail. Simulation, examples, and practice are incorporated. The presentation can be used for full class participation or individual use. It's great for use on student accessible teacher websites. I would expect the presentation to take anywhere from 20-30 minutes depending on teacher stopping points and student interaction.

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.
