## Learning Objectives

- Identify the different types of numbers.
- Graph rational numbers on the number line.
- Convert rational numbers between fractions and decimals.
- Learn how to determine which of two real numbers is greater.
- Determine the absolute values of real numbers.

### 1. What are the Different Types of Numbers?

There are different types or families of numbers. Learn how to identify natural numbers, whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, irrational numbers, and real numbers.

### 2. Graphing Rational Numbers on a Number Line

Graphing rational numbers on a number line is a method of representing a set of numbers by placing a dot at the correct values on a number line. Learn how to draw a number line and graph rational numbers.

### 3. Notation for Rational Numbers, Fractions & Decimals

A rational number can be expressed as a fraction and converted to a decimal, which can be converted to a fraction as well. Learn what rational numbers are, and explore the notation of and relationship between rational numbers, fractions, and decimals.

### 4. The Order of Real Numbers: Inequalities

An inequality is an operation that describes how one number can be compared to another. Explore symbols for less than and greater than, how to use inequalities, and the order of real numbers.

### 5. Finding the Absolute Value of a Real Number

The distance from zero on the number line is referred to as the absolute value of a number. Explore the absolute value and real numbers and discover how to find the absolute value of a real number through a series of examples.
