DOMAIN: The Number System
Cluster: Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers.
Standard: 6.NS.5 Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, debits/credits, positive/negative electric charge); use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in realworld contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.
Standard: 6.NS.6 Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates. a. Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line; recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself, e.g., –(–3) = 3, and that 0 is its own opposite.
Grade 7

Cluster: Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers.
Standard: 7.NS.1: Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers, and represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram. 1a. Describe situations in which opposite quantities combine to make 0. 1b. Understand p + q as the number located a distance q from p, in the positive or negative direction depending on whether q is positive or negative. Show that a number and its opposite have a sum of 0 (are additive inverses).
