Unit 3, Lesson 8# Ordering Integers and Other Rational Numbers (Continued)

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in the real world. Students recognize that if if a < b, then -a > -b because a number and its opposite are equal distances from zero, and moving along the horizontal number line to the right means the numbers are increasing. Students order rational numbers from least to greatest and from greatest to least. They relate the orderings to numbers' locations on the number line.
