## Abstract

In this master’s thesis absolute value of a number has been analysed. The first chapter describes an introduction of the term absolute value (modulus) in mathematics teaching and solving equations and inequalities with absolute value in high school. The second chapter studies the properties of the absolute value function and its behaviour by different mathematical operations. In the third chapter, some equations with absolute value and curves that represent them, have been analysed. The absolute value of a complex number has been analysed in the fourth chapter. Starting from introducing complex numbers in high school, going through modulus of complex numbers, the chapter ends with the trigonometric form of complex numbers. The fifth chapter contains solved problems from mathematical competitions and national leaving exams. In the last, sixth chapter, the connection between absolute value and norms in some vector spaces has been studied.
