KS.6.NS. The Number System
Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers.
6.NS.6. Understand a rational number as a point on the number line and a coordinate pair as a location on a coordinate plane.
6.NS.6b. Recognize signs of numbers in ordered pairs indicate 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.
6.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.
6.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.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume.
6.G.3. Draw polygons whose edges meet at right angles (rectilinear figure polygons) in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
