6.RP.2 – I can find calculate unit rates.

6.RP.3 – I can use ratios to find missing values including percent, unit price, and speed.

6.NS.1 – I can divide fractions.

6.NS.2 – I can do long division without a calculator.

6.NS.3 – I can add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals without a calculator.

6.NS.4 – I can find least common multiple and use it to add & subtract fractions.  I can find the greatest common factor and use it to simplify fractions. 

6.NS.5 – I understand positive and negative numbers.

6.NS.6 – I can plot points on a 4-quadrant coordinate grid.

6.NS.7 – I can compare positives, negatives, and absolute values using inequalities.

6.NS.8 – I can find horizontal and vertical distances on a coordinate grid.

6.EE.1 – I can find the value of expressions with exponents.

6.EE.2 – I can write, read, and evaluate expressions with variables and correctly use the order of operations.

6.EE.3 – I can use the distributive, associative, and commutative properties to write and simplify equivalent expressions.

6.EE.4 – I can identify when expressions are equivalent by simplifying and substituting multiple values.

6.EE.5 – I can solve simple equations/inequalities to find the value(s) of a variable that makes the equation/inequality true.

6.EE.6 – I can write expressions in order to solve a problem.

6.EE.7 – I can solve real world problems using equations.

6.EE.8 – I can write, solve, and graph simple inequalities.

6.EE.9 – I can write an equation to relate an independent and dependent variable.

6.G.1 – I can find the area of triangles, quadrilaterals, and compound shapes.

6.G.2 – I can find the volume of a rectangular prism.

6.G.3 – I can draw and identify polygons on a coordinate grid given the coordinates of its vertices.

6.G.4 – I can model prisms and pyramids and find their surface areas.

6.SP.1 – I can write questions with statistical variable responses.

6.SP.2 – I can describe the center, spread, and shape of statistical responses.

6.SP.3 – I can find and describe measures of center, as well as the interquartile range, and mean absolute deviation for a set of data.

6.SP.4 – I can graph data using a line plot, a histogram, or a box plot.

6.SP.5 – I can use graphs, measures of center, spread, variation, and sample size to summarize a data set and use them to make predictions about a larger population.
