### About this unit

Negative numbers are a necessary part of our understanding of mathematics and the world. Negative does not mean "bad." It's just changing the same amount, but in the opposite direction, like getting cooler instead of warmer. Absolute value tells us the amount of the change without the direction.### Practice
