Alabama Course of Study Alignments and/or Professional Development Standard Alignments:

MA2015 (6)
6. Fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation. [6-NS3]
MA2015 (7)
4. Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram. [7-NS1]
a. Describe situations in which opposite quantities combine to make 0. [7-NS1a]
Example: A hydrogen atom has 0 charge because its two constituents are oppositely charged.
b. 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). Interpret sums of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts. [7-NS1b]
c. Understand subtraction of rational numbers as adding the additive inverse, p - q = p + (-q). Show that the distance between two rational numbers on the number line is the absolute value of their difference, and apply this principle in real-world contexts. [7-NS1c]
d. Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract rational numbers. [7-NS1d]
MA2015 (7)
7. Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients. [7-EE1]
