Absolute Value

Grade: 6th Grade

Math.6.NS.7c or 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.


Math.6.NS.7d or 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.
