Welcome to 6th Grade Math - Quarter 1

Unit 0: Intro to 6th Grade Math

  1. Multiply and divide multi digit numbers.
  2. Solve problems using different strategies and proving answers.
  3. Solve expressions using Order of Operations.

 

Unit 1:  Number and Operations  

  1. I can demonstrate prime factorization using exponents.   (6.1.1.5, 6.1.1.7)
  2. I can use greatest common factors and least common multiples to calculate with fractions and find their equivalents.   (6.1.1.6) 
  3. I can create equivalent expressions using order of operations, the associative, commutative, and distributive properties with whole numbers and addition and subtraction of fractions.  (6.2.2.1) 

 

Start Unit 2:  Rational Numbers  

  1. I can convert rational numbers to equivalent expressions including fractions, mixed numbers, and improper fractions.   (6.1.1.7)
  2. I can use estimation and know if my answer makes sense.   (6.1.3.5)
  3. I can justify procedures for multiplication and division of fractions, and solve real-world problems using fractions and mixed numbers.   (6.1.3.1, 6.1.3.2, 6.1.3.4)
  4. I can create equivalent expressions using order of operations, the associative, commutative, and distributive properties with whole numbers and fractions.  (6.2.2.1)

Start Unit 4:  More Rational Numbers

  1. I can use estimation and know if my answer makes sense.   (6.1.3.5)
  2. I can use and justify procedures for multiplication and division of decimals, fractions, and mixed numbers.   (6.1.3.1, 6.1.3.2)
  3. I can solve real-world mathematical problems with combinations of decimals, fractions, and mixed numbers.   (6.1.3.4)
  4. I can create equivalent expressions using order of operations, the associative, commutative, and distributive properties with positive rational numbers.  (6.2.2.1)
