## 6.1 Area, Surface Area, Volume

Students reason about relationships among shapes to determine area, surface area, and volume.

Students reason about relationships among shapes to determine area, surface area, and volume.

Students are introduced to the concept of ratio and use reasoning about multiplication and division to solve ratio problems.

Students build on their understanding of ratios to develop the ideas of rate, unit rate, and percents. The work with ratios and proportions provides a context for generating expressions and equations.

Students revisit the elementary focus of fractions and develop a meaningful understanding of fraction multiplication and division.

Throughout all units in Grade 6, students should generalize (algebraically and otherwise) about computations that arise from a context. Here, they build upon that work to solve simple equations and reason about the potential equivalence of two quantities.

Students develop a meaning of negative numbers and use absolute value to describe distance from zero on a numberline.

Students build and interpret dot plots, box plots, histograms to more deeply understanding data in context.
