common core state standards

MATH.PRACTICE.MP1

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Plans a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt.

MATH.PRACTICE.MP3

Construct viable arguments and critique others’ reasoning. Analyzes situations by breaking them into cases.

MATH.PRACTICE.MP4​

Model with Mathematics. Reflects on whether the results make sense.

MATH.PRACTICE.MP4

Model with Mathematics. Makes assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that these may need revision later.

MATH.PRACTICE.MP4

Model with Mathematics. Improves the model to better serve its purpose.

MATH.PRACTICE.MP5

Use appropriate tools strategically. Uses technological tools to explore and deepen conceptual understanding.​

MATH.CONTENT.6.NS.C.5

Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers. Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, credits/debits, positive/negative electric charge); use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.

MATH.CONTENT.6.EE.B.6

Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities. Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.​

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.6-8.3
