7.Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers. 2

- a.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.*2 - b.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.
- 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.* - 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.*
