Grade 6 Mathematics Module 1

Grade 6 Mathematics Module 1: Ratios and Unit Rates 

Students begin their sixth grade year investigating the concepts of ratio and rate. They use multiple forms of ratio language and ratio notation, and formalize understanding of equivalent ratios. Students apply reasoning when solving collections of ratio problems in real world contexts using various tools (e.g., tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, tables, equations and graphs). Students bridge their understanding of ratios to the value of a ratio, and then to rate and unit rate, discovering that a percent of a quantity is a rate per 100. The 35 day module concludes with students expressing a fraction as a percent and finding a percent of a quantity in real world concepts, supporting their reasoning with familiar representations they used previously in the module.

The student materials consist of the student pages for each lesson in Module 1. 

The copy ready materials are a collection of the module assessments, lesson exit tickets and fluency exercises from the teacher materials.
