Tracking Stocks and Distance on the Coordinate Plane

Unit 3: Integers and Rational Numbers
Lesson 11 of 17

Objective: SWBAT: • Find absolute value of rational numbers • Compare absolute values • Plot points on the coordinate plane • Calculate length of horizontal and vertical lines on the coordinate plane

Big Idea: Which stock price had the largest change? How do you know? What is the distance between (a, 5) and (a, -3)? Students continue tracking their investments and work on strategies for calculating length of horizontal and vertical lines.
