Ch 14: AEPA Math: Absolute Value

About This Chapter

Arizona requires its teachers demonstrate their knowledge of their desired subject through a series of tests. The state has replaced its traditional AEPA Math exam with the standard National Evaluation Series (NES) Math exam. This exam will have a section on absolute value. Let us help you review this subject with our video lessons and practice questions.

NES Math: Absolute Value - Chapter Summary

Our absolute value chapter will help you review the key ideas behind the concept so that you can apply it to a range of mathematical problems. It will give the formal mathematical definition of absolute value, review how to solve problems involving absolute value, and then examine these functions' graphs. By the end of the chapter you will have refreshed your memory on:

  • The definition of absolute value
  • Finding the absolute value of real numbers
  • Absolute value graphs and their transformations
  • Graphing absolute value equations

Each lesson will have quizzes you can use to gain familiarity with your upcoming test. We will also provide test taking strategies that will save you time during your exam.

What is an Absolute Value?

1. What is an Absolute Value?

When we're talking and comparing numbers, we often don't care whether its positive or negative, just how big it is. This is often called the magnitude of a number and we find it by taking the absolute value. Learn all about it here!

Finding the Absolute Value of a Real Number

2. Finding the Absolute Value of a Real Number

You can find the absolute value of any real number. This lesson will define absolute value, explain what real numbers are and give the steps to finding the absolute value of any real number.

Solving Absolute Value Practice Problems

3. Solving Absolute Value Practice Problems

There are many easy mistakes to make when solving absolute value equations. Learn how to avoid those mistakes here by working on examples of absolute value equations with operations on the inside and the outside of the absolute value.

How to Graph an Absolute Value and Do Transformations

4. How to Graph an Absolute Value and Do Transformations

Absolute value graphs normally look like the letter 'V', but transformations can change that 'V' in a number of different ways. As well as teaching you how to graph absolute values, this video will focus on a specific group of transformations called translations. Learn all about what that means here!

Graphing Absolute Value Equations: Dilations & Reflections

5. Graphing Absolute Value Equations: Dilations & Reflections

Although a basic absolute value graph isn't complicated, transformations can make them sufficiently confusing! In this lesson, you'll practice different transformations of absolute value graphs.
