Lesson Overview
Todays lesson is about absolute value and the coordinate plane.

What is Absolute Value? The absolute value of a number is the distance between that number
and zero on a number line.
Example: The absolute value of 5 is written as |5|. The absolute value of 5 is 5, because it is 5
units away from zero.
Can you think of another number that is 5 units away from zero?
Do numbers and their opposites have the same absolute value? Explain.

## Lesson Overview Part II

Todays lesson is about absolute value and the coordinate plane.

What is an ordered pair? An ordered pair is a pair of coordinates that tell us the location of something.

Example: (x,y)
The first coordinate in an ordered pair is called the x-coordinate. It is horizontal.
The second coordinate in an ordered pair is called the y-coordinate. It is vertical.
To find or plot an ordered pair, start at the origin (0,0). First, find the x-coordinate, then the y-coordinate.
