- 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.

- 6.NS.C.6aRecognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line; recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself, e.g., â(â3) = 3, and that 0 is its own opposite.
- 6.NS.C.6bUnderstand signs of numbers in ordered pairs as indicating locations in quadrants of the coordinate plane; recognize that when two ordered pairs differ only by signs, the locations of the points are related by reflections across one or both axes.
- 6.NS.C.6cFind and position integers and other rational numbers on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram; find and position pairs of integers and other rational numbers on a coordinate plane.

Integers in the Real World

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Adding and Subtracting Integers with Counters

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Integers and Rational Numbers

Big Idea:What are opposites and what happens when you add them together? How can you use counters to model 7-9? What about 3 â (-3)? Students work with counters to model adding and subtracting integers.

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.

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.

The Three Little Bears

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Operations with Integers

Big Idea:Students begin to make sense of how adding and subtracting with negative numbers relates to prior experience and knowledge of adding and subtracting with positive numbers.

6.NS.C.6a

Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line; recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself, e.g., â(â3) = 3, and that 0 is its own opposite.

6.NS.C.6b

Understand signs of numbers in ordered pairs as indicating locations in quadrants of the coordinate plane; recognize that when two ordered pairs differ only by signs, the locations of the points are related by reflections across one or both axes.

6.NS.C.6c

Find and position integers and other rational numbers on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram; find and position pairs of integers and other rational numbers on a coordinate plane.
