Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line; recognize 0 is its own opposite and the opposite of a positive number is a negative, and the opposite of a negative number is a positive, such as −(−3) = 3.
The Number System
- Apply and extend previous understanding of numbers to the system of rational numbers.
Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes, using appropriate range and intervals, to represent points on the line and in the plane, that include negative numbers and coordinates.
