See what we offerLearn more about

- 6.NS.C.5Understand 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, debits/credits, positive/negative electric charge); use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.
- 6.NS.C.6Understand 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.
- 6.NS.C.7Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.
- 6.NS.C.8Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.

Absolute Value and Stocks

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:What is the stock market? What does it mean to own a share of a company? What is an absolute value? Students learn about the stock market and start a project involving tracking investments.

Describing Numbers

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:Different real-world contexts and words can be used to describe relationships between rational numbers.

Integers: Number Lines and Absolute Values

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:Opposite rational numbers have the same distance from 0 on a number line.
The absolute value of a number represents the distance from the number to 0.

Comparing Rational Numbers

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:Rational numbers and number lines can be used to represent real world situations.

Review of Rational Numbers on the Number Line

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Number Sense (2)

Big Idea:Preparing for a test requires lots of practice and this review will help students show what they know about how to use a number line.

Comparing and Ordering Integers

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:The order in which numbers are placed on a number line will determine relative value of the numbers.

Interpret Integers in Context

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:Rational numbers and number lines can be used to represent real world situations.

The Meaning of Absolute Value

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Number Sense (2)

Big Idea:What is the meaning of absolute value?

Tracking Stocks and Distance on the Coordinate Plane

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:Which stock price had the largest change? How do you know? What is the distance between (a, 5) and (a, -3)? Students continue tracking their investments and work on strategies for calculating length of horizontal and vertical lines.

Tracking Stocks and the Coordinate Plane

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:Which stock price had the largest change? How do you know? How do you represent a point on the coordinate plane? Students continue tracking their investments.

Tracking Investments and Review

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:Students continue tracking their investments and apply what they have learned about absolute value to complete group tasks.

Unit Test

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:What have students learned during this unit? What gaps do students have in their understanding? Students take the Unit 3 test.

Where Does That Fall On The Number Line?

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:Where does five-thirds belong on a number line? What about 1.61? Students apply their knowledge of fractions and decimals in order to compare and order fractions and decimals.

Error Analysis: Unit 1 Test

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers

Big Idea:Students will receive a detailed score report and will learn the standards they should practice during this lesson.

Inequalities

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:If a < b, what do we know about a and b? If b < c < d, how could we show that on a number line? Students continue creating inequalities and graphs to represent situations.

6.NS.C.7a

Interpret statements of inequality as statements about the relative position of two numbers on a number line diagram. For example, interpret â3 > â7 as a statement that â3 is located to the right of â7 on a number line oriented from left to right. (Combine and relabel)

6.NS.C.7b

Write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in real-world contexts. For example, write â3 Â°C > â7 Â°C to express the fact that â3 Â°C is warmer than â7 Â°C.

6.NS.C.7c

Understand the absolute value of a rational number as its distance from 0 on the number line; interpret absolute value as magnitude for a positive or negative quantity in a real-world situation. For example, for an account balance of â30 dollars, write |â30| = 30 to describe the size of the debt in dollars.

6.NS.C.7d

Distinguish comparisons of absolute value from statements about order. For example, recognize that an account balance less than â30 dollars represents a debt greater than 30 dollars.
