<p>This lesson is designed to introduce students to the concept and usage of absolute value. It is tied to the second part of the common core standard 6.NS.7. Lesson Objective: Students will be able to use absolute values to determine the magnitudes of quantities. The lesson uses real world scenarios such as distances from a residence or a classroom to showcase where absolute value and magnitude would be necessary to make comparisons. The lesson is visual, rather than calculation heavy.</p>
