Vocabulary








Activities At Home
 Write clues to describe polygons. Try to guess your partners polygon.
 Use a compass or computer to draw geometric figures.
 Take the measurements of your bedroom. Determine the amount of carpet needed to cover the floor. Determine the amount of wallpaper to cover your walls.
 Estimate the size of your classroom. Determine the area and volume of your classroom. Think about different ways you could figure out the volume without measuring with a yard stick or measuring tape.
 Using weighted paper, draw a net of a threedimensional figure. Using color pencils, decorate and cut.

Vocabulary












Activities At Home
 Pick or create numbers to make fractions with. Add, subtract, multiply, divide, or simplify using the fractions
you created.  With a partner, pick numbers. Race to find the common factors of those numbers.
 With a partner, choose fractions. Race to put the fractions in order from least to greatest or greatest to least.
 Find examples of integers in the newspaper, on the internet, or in magazines.
 Create or pick numbers to make decimals. Add, subtract, multiply, or divide the decimals.
 Create a treasure map on a coordinate plane. Write clues, using coordinates, to find the treasure.

Ratios & Proportions
What Your Child Will Learn
Understand the concept of a ratio (6.RP.1) 
Understand the concept of unit rate (6.RP.2) 
Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real world problems (6.RP.3) 
Vocabulary





Activities At Home
 Practice finding ratios and equal ratios by finding equivalent fractions.
 Create ratios for objects around the house. For example, the ratio of male shoes to female shoes.
 Create fractions. Find fractions that are equivalent to the original fraction.
 Go to the grocery store and find the unit rates for different items at the store.

Expressions & Equations
What Your Child Will Learn
Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving wholenumber exponents (6.EE.1) 
Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers (6.EE.2) 
Simplify algebraic expressions using the distributive, associative, and communicative properties when appropriate.
For example, 3 (2 + x) can be expressed as 6 + 3x (6.EE.3) 
Identify equivalent expressions. For example, the expressions y + y + y and 3y are equivalent because they name
the same number regardless of which number y stands for (6.EE.4) 
Understand equations and inequalities (6.EE.5) 
Use variables and expressions to solve realworld problems (6.EE.6) 
Use variables and equations to solve realworld problems (6.EE.7)
