**"Student-Friendly" Common Core Math Standards - 6th Grade**

**The following are the common core standards written in "kid-friendly" language. To see the original standards go to http://www.corestandards.org/Math/****Ratio and Proportion Standards:**

**RP 6.1**

**I know what a ratio is. I can describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. (For every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes.)**

**RP 6.2**

**I know that a unit rate of a/b is related with a ration a:b. I can use rate language when I talk about a ratio relationship. (We paid $75 for 15 hamburgers, which is a rate of $5 per hamburger.)**

**RP 6.3.a**

**I can make tables of equivalent ratios. I can relate quantities with whole-numbers measurements. I can fid the missing values in the tables. I can graph the table values on a coordinate plane. I can use a table to compare ratios.**

**RP 6.3.b**

**I can solve unit rate problems that include pricing or speed. (If it took 7 hours to mow 4 lawns, then at that rate, how many lawns could be mowed in 35 hours?)**

**RP 6.3.c**

**I can find the whole number if I am given a part and a percent. I can find a percent of a number as a rate per 100. (30% = 30/100)**

**RP 6.3.d**

**I know how to use ratios to convert measurement units. I can change units the way I need to multiply or divide a quantity.**

**Number Sense Standards:**

**NS 6.1**

**I can divide fractions, I can solve word problems that ask me to divide fractions by fractions. (a/b) divided by (c/d) = (ad/bc)**

**NS 6.2**

**I can divide multi-digit numbers correctly.**

**NS 6.3**

**I can add, subtract, multiply multi-digit decimals correctly.**

**NS 6.4**

**I know how to find the greatest common factor of 2 whole numbers that are less than 100. I know how to find the least common multiple of 2 whole numbers less than 12. I know how to use the distributive property to show a sum of two whole numbers that have a common factor as a sum of two whole numbers that have no common factor. (36 = 8 as 4(9+2).**

**NS 6.5**

**I know that positive and negative numbers describe opposite directions on a number line. I can use positive and negative numbers to represent real world situations like temperature, elevation, credits/debits, and positive/negative electric charge.**

**NS 6.6.a**

**I know that a negative number represents any number to the left of 0 on a number line. I know that a positive number represents any number to the right of 0 on a number line. I know that the opposite of a positive number is its negative number.**
