Grade 6 Unit 1


Course 1 McDougal Littell MATH


Understand the relationships between representations of rational numbers

Understand applications and operations on rational numbers

Understand variables and expressions as symbolic representations of numerical values


NS1.1 Compare and order positive and negative fractions, decimals, and mixed numbers and place them on a number line NS2.1 Solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of positive fractions and explain why a particular operation was used for a given situation

NS2.2 Explain the meaning of multiplication and division of positive fractions and perform the calculations (e.g., 5/8 divided by 15/16 = 5/8 × 16/15 = 2/3)

NS 2.4 Determine the least common multiple and the greatest common divisor of whole numbers; use them to solve problems with fractions (e.g., to find a common denominator to add two fractions or to find the reduced form for a fraction)

AF1.2 Write and evaluate an algebraic expression for a given situation, using up to three variables

AF1.3 Apply algebraic order of operations and the commutative, associative, and distributive properties to evaluate expressions; and justify each step in the process

AF1.4 Solve problems manually by using the correct order of operations or by using a scientific calculator
