According to the CCSS, sixth grade students should focus on four critical areas:

a) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems,

b) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers,

c) writing, interpreting and using expressions and equations,

d) developing understanding of statistical thinking.

The following mathematics practice sets of questions are designed to test the knowledge of sixth grade students. We are not afiliated with the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) or the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) which coordinate the CCSS initiative.

6th Grade Common Core Ratios and Proportional Relationships

6.RP: Students need to understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems.

6th Grade Common Core Number System

6.NS: Apply and extend previous understanding of multiplication and division to divide fractions by fractions, compute fluently with multi-digit numbers and find common factors and multiples, and apply and extend previous understanding of numbers to the system of rational numbers.

6th Grade Common Core Expressions and Equations

6.EE: Students need to apply and extend previous understanding of arithmetic to algebraic expressions, reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities and represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables.

6th Grade Common Core Statistics and Probability

6.SP: The 6.SP CCS standards require sixth grade students to develop understanding of statistical variability, and to describe and summarize distributions.

6th Grade Common Core Geometry

6.G: Sixth grade students are expected to be able to solve mathematical and real-world problems involving area, surface area and volume.
