Grade 6 Math

Here is the standard your child is working on in Advanced Math:

I can find and position integers and other rational numbers on a number line and a coordinate plane.
Here is the standard on which your child is working in math.
6th grade math is covering standards:

1. Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number

2. Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
     a. Write expressions that record operations with numbers and with letters
     standing for numbers. For example, express the calculation “Subtract y
     from 5” as 5 – y.

     b. Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term,
     product, factor, quotient, coefficient); view one or more parts of an
     expression as a single entity. For example, describe the expression 2 (8
    + 7) as a product of two factors; view (8 + 7) as both a single entity and a
     sum of two terms.

     c. Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include
     expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems.
     Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number
     exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to
     specify a particular order (Order of Operations). For example, use the
     formulas V = s3 and A = 6 s2 to find the volume and surface area of a cube
     with sides of length s = ½.

3. Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.
For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + x) to
produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property
to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4x +
3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent
expression 3y.

4. Identify when two expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the two
expressions name the same number regardless of which value is
substituted into them). For example, the expressions y + y + y and 3y are
equivalent because they name the same number regardless of which
number y stands for.
Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities.
5. Understand solving an equation or inequality as a process of answering a
question: which values from a specified set, if any, make the equation or
inequality true? Use substitution to determine whether a given number in a
specified set makes an equation or inequality true.

6. Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving
a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can
represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any
number in a specified set.

7. 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.
We encourage conversations about these standards so you can monitor your child's progress and understanding more effectively. Should you have any questions, please select the staff icon (to the right) for access to teacher e mail.
