properties of operations, and describing realworld contexts using sums and differences.

7.NS.A.1.A

Describe situations in which opposite quantities combine to make 0. For example, in the
first round of a game, Maria scored 20 points. In the second round of the same game, she
lost 20 points. What is her score at the end of the second round? 
Wisconsin Academic Standards:
7.NS.A.1.a

Describe situations in which opposite quantities combine to make 0. For example, if you earn $10 and then spend $10, you are left with $0. 
Alabama Course of Study Standards:
4.b

Interpret the sum of two or more rational numbers, by using a number line and in realworld contexts. 
Arkansas Academic Standards:
7.NS.A.1.B

 Understand p + q as a number where p is the starting point and q represents a distance from p in the positive or negative direction depending on whether q is positive or negative
 Interpret sums of rational numbers by describing realworld contexts (e.g., 3 + 2 means beginning at 3, move 2 units to the right and end at the sum of 5; 3 + (2) means beginning at 3, move 2 units to the left and end at the sum of 1; 70 + (30) = 40 could mean after earning $70, $30 was spent on a new video game, leaving a balance of $40)
