The information below “unpacks” the standards. The Academic Vocabulary is highlighted and defined to help you understand the language of the standards. Refer to the lessons listed after each standard for help with the math terms and phrases. The Chapter Concept shows how the standard is applied in this chapter.

California Standard
NS2.5 Understand the meaning of absolute value of a number; interpret the the absolute value as the distance of the number from zero on a number line; and determine the absolute value of real numbers. (Lessons 1-3 and 1-5)

absolute value the distance a number is from zero on a number line interpret to understand and explain the meaning of

Chapter Concept
You find the absolute value of a number by determining how far it is from zero on a number line. Example: Since 3 is 3 units from 0 on a number line, the absolute value of 3 is 3. You rewrite a verbal statement using mathematical symbols. Example: three less than a number n 3

AF1.1 Use variables and appropriate operations to write an expression, an equation, an inequality, or a system of equations or inequalities that represents a verbal description (e.g., three less than a number, half as large as area A). (Lesson 1-2)

variable a symbol, usually a letter, used to show an amount that can change Example: x verbal using words

AF1.2 Use the correct order of operations to evaluate algebraic expressions such as 3(2x 5)2. (Lesson 1-1)

evaluate find the value Example: x x 2 5 3 for x 3 3 2

You find the value of expressions by performing basic arithmetic operations in a specific order.

AF1.4 Use algebraic terminology (e.g., variable, equation, term, coefficient, inequality, expression, constant) correctly. (Lessons 1-1 and 1-7)

terminology words used to represent certain items or ideas

You learn the names of different mathematical concepts.

AF4.1 Solve two-step linear equations and inequalities in one variable over the rational numbers, interpret the solution or solutions in the context from...
