Students must use their knowledge of absolute value to find the hidden treasure along the number line. After each clue they will shade the parts of the number line that the treasure could be hidden on. Using the clues together, students will have a very small portion of the number line shaded by clue #5. The final clue #6 gives students a clear idea where the treasure is hidden. Each clue requires students to understand absolute value. Students must also have prior knowledge of inequalities (<, >, =) and the definition of an "integer" (whole number) and how it is different than a rational number.
*No answer key is included. Treasure is hidden on -5.
