Unit 7 Independent Study

Link for  Georgia Virtual School

http://cms.gavirtualschool.org/Shared/Math/MSMath6_13/07_RationalExplorations/index.html

Task List:  Unit 7 Task Student Task List (OL 2018)-11jpmj4

Game Plan:  

Students will be working through an independent study for this unit. They will be watching videos, reading provided information and examples, utilizing interactive websites, taking online practice quizzes, and working some problems from the text.

Students will be working at their own pace. Some students will need to do some work from home to stay on track.  If students finish early, they will be given a review packet for Milestones.

Homework:  The independent study is worked on daily in class.  Students know what to do using the task list attached above.  If they don’t complete an activity in class, that becomes homework.  

Standards to be covered:

MGSE6.NS.5 Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values 

MGSE6.NS.6 Understand a rational number as a point on the number line.  

MGSE6.NS.6a Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line; recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself.

 MGSE6.NS.6b Understand signs of number in ordered pairs as indicating locations in quadrants of the coordinate plane; recognize that when two ordered pairs differ only by signs, the locations of the points are related by reflections across one or both axes. 

MGSE6.NS.6c Find and position integers and other rational numbers on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram; find and position pairs of integers and other rational numbers on a coordinate plane. 

MGSE6.NS.7 Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers. 

MGSE6.NS.8 Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane.  Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.

Week of March 19, 2018

Standards to be covered:

MGS E6.SP.2. Understand that a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution which can be described by its center, spread, and overall shape.

MGSE6.SP.3 Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number.

MGSE6.SP.4: Display numerical data plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots

MGSE6.SP.5 Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by:

a.  Reporting the number of observations.

b.  Describing the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it was measured and its units of measurement.

c.  Giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (interquartile range).
