MD.MA.6.NS. The Number System (NS)
Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers.
6.NS.7. Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.
6.NS.7.b. Write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in real-world contexts. For example, write –3°C > – 7°C to express the fact that –3°C is warmer than –7°C.
6.NS.7.b.1. See the skills and knowledge that are stated in the Standard.
MD.MA.6.EE. Expressions and Equations (EE)
Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities.
6.EE.8. Write an inequality of the form x > c or x < c to represent a constraint or condition in a real-world or mathematical problem. Recognize that inequalities of the form x > c or x < c have infinitely many solutions; represent solutions of such inequalities on number line diagrams.
6.EE.8.2. Knowledge of ≤ and ≥.
