MT2010: Math 6

Course Description

Engage in math practices to make sense of mathematics and real world connections. Connect ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems. Understand division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers- which includes negative numbers. Write- interpret- and use expressions and equations. Develop understanding of statistical thinking.

Essential Standards

  • Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.A.1)
  • Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.A.2)
  • Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.A.3)
  • Solve real-world and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form x + p = q and px = q for cases in which p, q and x are all nonnegative rational numbers. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.B.7)
  • Write an inequality of the form x > c or x < c to represent a constraint or condition in a real-world or mathematical problem. Recognize that inequalities of the form x > c or x < c have infinitely many solutions; represent solutions of such inequalities on number line diagrams. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.B.8)
  • Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.G.A.1​​​​​​​)
  • Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas V = l w h and V = b h to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.G.A.2​​​​​​​)
  • Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word problems involving division of fractions by fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.A.1​​​​​​​)
  • Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, credits/debits, positive/negative electric charge); use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.C.5)
  • Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.C.6​​​​​​​)
  • Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.NS.C.7)
  • Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.1)
  • Understand the concept of a unit rate a / b associated with a ratio a:b with b ≠ 0, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.2)
  • Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.(CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.3)
  • Develop understanding of statistical variability. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.SP.A)
  • Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.SP.B.4)
  • Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context. (CCSS.Math.Content.6.SP.B.5)
