absolute value

In this lesson, students learn about comparing and ordering rational numbers and about the absolute value of a rational number as its distance from 0 on a number line. Students are given the opportunity to practice estimating the locations of various fractions on a number line.


In this video, rational numbers are described. Any rational number can be found on a number line. When a horizontal and vertical number line come together, we can form the coordinate plane with 4 quadrants. Rational number coordinates can identify any point in the coordinate plane.
