The sixth-grade standards provide a transition from the emphasis placed on whole number arithmetic in the elementary grades to foundations of algebra. The standards include a focus on rational numbers and operations involving rational numbers. Students will use ratios to compare data sets; recognize decimals, fractions, and percents as ratios; solve single-step and multistep problems, using positive rational numbers; and gain a foundation in the understanding of and operations with integers. Students will solve problems involving area and perimeter, and begin to graph in a coordinate plane. In addition, students will build on the concept of graphical representation of data developed in the elementary grades and develop concepts regarding measures of center. Students will solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, and use algebraic terminology. Students will represent proportional relationships using two variables as a precursor to the development of the concept of linear functions.

 1st Nine Weeks Instructional Focus 6.4 Recognize and represent patterns with whole number exponents and perfect squares. 6.3abc a) identify and represent integers; b) compare and order integers; and c) identify and describe absolute value of integers. 6.6abc a) add, subtract, multiply, and divide integers; b) solve practical problems involving operations with integers; and c) simplify numerical expressions involving integers. *On the state assessment, items measuring this objective are assessed without the use of a calculator.
