Students will use a story problem and map out a path determining distances on a Quadrant graph. This Teaching Tool has been great for identifying parts of a quadrant plane while also keeping a real world aspect to the teaching. Students learn Ordered Pairs, Coordinates, and about each quadrant.I hav
Use this Smart Notebook activity to open up discussion about where we start on a number line. What can zero represent?
Includes: identifying integers, what zero represents in a situation, distance between integers on a number line.
Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.
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.
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.
Write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in real-world contexts. For example, write -3° 𝐶 > -7° 𝐶 to express the fact that -3° 𝐶 is warmer than -7° 𝐶.
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.
