  • Can you explain the concept of absolute value? I don't understand! How come it is always positive?!?
  • Absolute value is the magnitude of a number in comparison with other values. Basically, it is the distance from zero. Here is an example...
  • Ken works at the local hospital. He leaves his home a 8:00 each day.
  • He travels 10 miles to work every day. If his house is zero, how far away is he from his house?
  • He is 10 miles (units) from his house (zero)! But what if he moves in the opposite direction (negative)?
  • Whether you are moving in a positive or negative direction, distance is always positive. Absolute value is always positive because it is the distance from zero.
