Massachusetts Mathematics Standards Addressed:

Number Sense and Operations

6.N.9- Select and use appropriate operations to solve problems involving additition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and positive integer exponents with whole numbers, and with positive fractions, mixed numbers, decimals, and percents.

6.N.13- Accurately and efficiently add, subtract, multiply, and divide (with double-digit divisors) whole numbers and positive decimals.


Patterns, Relations, and Algebra

6.P.2- Replace variables with given values and evaluate/simplify.

6.P.3- Use the properties of equality to solve problems.

6.P.4- Represent real situations and mathematical relationships with concrete models, tables, graphs, and rules in words and with symbols.

6.P.5- Solve linear equations using concrete models, tables, graphs, and paper-pencil methods.



6.M.1- Apply the concepts of perimeter and area to the solution of problems.  Apply formulas where appropriate.

6.M.2- Identify, measure, describe, classify, and construct various angles, triangles, and quadrilaterals.

6.M.4- Find areas of triangles and parallelograms.  Recognize that shapes with the same number of sides but different appearances can have the same area.  Develop strategies to find the area of more complex shapes.

6.M.5- Identify, measure, and describe circles and the relationships of the radius, diameter, circumference, and area, and use the concepts to solve problems.


Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability

6.D.1- Describe and compare data sets using the concepts of mediam, mean, mode, maximum and minimum, and range.
