Do Now 5 minutes!
Mr. Es Ordering Integers Challenge!

Lesson Overview
Todays lesson is about absolute value and the coordinate plane.
We will learn about both using our curtain-made 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.

We will learn about both using our curtain-made 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.
