Distance
amount of separation between 2 points.
Integers
The set of whole numbers and their opposite
Magnitude
Greatness in size or amount
Negative numbers
The set of numbers less than 0
Opposite number
Two different numbers that have the same absolute value. Example: 4 and are opposite numbers because both have an absolute value of 4.
Ordered Pair
A pair of numbers, , that indicate the position of a point on the Cartesian coordinate Plane.
