Actions

6.RP Ratios and Proportional Relationships

  • 6.RP.A Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems.

    • 6.RP.A.1 Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities.

    • 6.RP.A.2 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.

    • 6.RP.A.3 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. Use and create tables to compare equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole-number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Solve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed. Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity). Solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent. Use ratio reasoning to convert measurement units; manipulate and transform units appropriately when multiplying or dividing quantities.

6.NS The Number System

6.EE Expressions and Equations

6.G Geometry

  • 6.G.A Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume.

    • 6.G.A.1 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.

    • 6.G.A.2 Find the volume of a right rectangular prism including whole number and 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 including fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

    • 6.G.A.3 Apply the following techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems. Draw polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices. Use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.

    • 6.G.A.4 Apply the following techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems. Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles. Use the nets to find the surface area of these figures.
