- 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.

Graphing Integers on the Coordinate Grid

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Coordinate Plane

Big Idea:Each point on a coordinate grid can be described with a pair of coordinate values (x, y) that describe the horizontal (x) and vertical (y) distance from the origin.

Polygons on the Coordinate Grid

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Coordinate Plane

Big Idea:A polygon is made up of line segments that connect the shapeâs vertices. The vertices can be identified as unique points on a grid.

Shapes on the Coordinate Grid

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Coordinate Plane

Big Idea:A polygon is made up of line segments that connect the shapeâs vertices. The vertices can be identified as unique points on a grid.

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.

Visiting the Magic Kingdom!

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Number Sense (2)

Big Idea:Have you ever wondered what the magic kingdom would look like on a coordinate grid?

Coordinate Grid and Geometry

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Number Sense (2)

Big Idea:Students make connections between the coordinate grid and Geometry.

Tracking Stocks and Distance on the Coordinate Plane

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

6.NS.C.5

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, 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.6

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.

6.NS.C.7

Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.

6.NS.C.8

Solve 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.
