• Understand the concept of absolute value
Identifying Big Ideas from Unwrapped Standards:
1. A rational number is a number that has a location on the real number line and can be written
as a ratio, fraction, decimal, or percent.
2. Rational numbers are compared by converting among forms to find equivalent values.
3. Rational numbers are ordered from least to greatest on a real number line.
4. Scientific notation is a shorthand way of writing numbers using powers of 10.
Essential Questions from Big Ideas to Guide Instruction and Assessment:
1. What is a rational number?
2. How do you compare rational numbers?
3. How are rational numbers ordered?
4. What is scientific notation?
