Math 6 | Unit 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Putting it All Together

In this optional unit, students use concepts and skills from previous units. In solving Fermi problems, they use measurement conversions together with their knowledge of volumes or surface areas of right rectangular prisms or the relationship of distance, rate, and time. In answering questions about ratios of two populations, they work with percentages that include numbers expressed in the form ab or as decimals. In answering questions about diagrams of rectangles with whole-number dimensions, they connect arithmetic features of the dimensions such as remainder or greatest common factor with geometric features of the diagrams. In answering questions about votes, voting methods, and equitable distribution, they use their knowledge of equivalent ratios, part–part ratios, percentages, and unit rates.
