This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 7, Unit 5, Grade 6. Students use absolute value to determine distance between integers on the coordinate plane in order to find side lengths of polygons. More specifically, they build on their work with absolute value from Lessons 11 and 12 as well as on their work with coordinate planes from Lessons 17-19. Also note that each square unit on the coordinate plane represents 1 unit.
