6.NS.3.6 (A and C only) 

Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates.

a. 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, e.g. –(-3)=3 and that 0 is its own opposite.

c. 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


Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.
a. Interpret statements of inequality as statements about the relative position of two numbers on a number line diagram.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Learning Targets:

• show and explain why every rational number can be represented by a point on a number line.
• plot a number and its opposite on a number line and recognize that they are equidistant from zero.
• find the opposite of any number, including zero.
• plot a point on a number line
• read a point from a number line

• describe the relative position of two numbers on a number line.

Classroom Activities

This week we will be completing classroom activities to further teach and implement the above standards. Students will participate in classroom discussions and complete assignments using both IXL and MathSpace to practice and master these skills.

Assignments Due

The first graded assignment of the new quarter is due October 23 (Monday) 

On MathSpace entitled “Absolute Value/Coordinate Plane Homework Due 10/23”


Additional Resources

Students are able to complete additional practice on both Mathspace and IXL
