This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 1, Unit 3, Grade 6. Students use their constructions to model the location of a number relative to zero by using a curved arrow starting at zero and pointing away from zero toward the number. Pose questions to students as a whole group, one question at a time. Notice the curved arrow is pointing to the right to show a positive direction.
