 Teacher Kimberlie Hymes Math 6th 33 Integers and Rational Numbers
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.6.NS.3.7
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.
b. Write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in real world-contexts.
c. Understand the absolute value of a rational number as its distance from 0 on the number line; interpret absolute value as magnitude for a positive or negative quantity in a real-world situation.
d. Distinguish comparisons of absolute value from statements about order.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• describe the relative position of two numbers on a number line when given an inequality. • understand the absolute value of a number as its distance from zero on the number line. • understand that each nonzero integer, has an opposite and integers are opposites if they are on opposite sides of zero and are the same distance from zero on the number line (-4 and 4). • write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in the real-world. • recognize that if a < b, then -a > -b, because a number and its opposite are equal distances from zero; recognize that moving along the horizontal number line to the right means the numbers are increasing. • describe the relative position of two numbers on a number line when given an inequality. • write, explain, and justify inequality statements.

Classroom Activities

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards.

Wednesdays we do not complete our rotation. We work lessons customized to each students level on I-Ready. These lessons are customized to each learning level and scaffolds the current unit for each student allowing advanced students to work ahead and help remediate struggling students.

Assignments Due

The week students will be assigned the following to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)  7th Grade C7, C9, B3, B5

students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments.

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) None

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems.

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