6.8 The student will solve multistep consumerapplication problems involving fractions and
decimals and present data and conclusions in paragraphs, tables, or graphs. Planning a
budget will be included.
Measurement
6.9 The student will compare and convert units of measure for length, area, weight/mass, and volume within the U.S. Customary system and the metric system and estimate conversions between units in each system:
a) length — part of an inch (1/2, 1/4, and 1/8), inches, feet, yards, miles, millimeters, centimeters, meters, and kilometers;
b) weight/mass — ounces, pounds, tons, grams, and kilograms;
c) liquid volume — cups, pints, quarts, gallons, milliliters, and liters; and
d) area — square units. *
* The intent of this standard is for students to make ballpark comparisons and not to
memorize conversion factors between U.S. Customary and metric units.
6.10 The student will estimate and then determine length, weight/mass, area, and liquid
volume/capacity, using standard and nonstandard units of measure.
6.11 The student will determine if a problem situation involving polygons of four or fewer
sides represents the application of perimeter or area and apply the appropriate formula.
6.12 The student will
a) solve problems involving the circumference and/or area of a circle when given the
diameter or radius; and
b) derive approximations for pi (π) from measurements for circumference and diameter,
using concrete materials or computer models.
6.13 The student will
a) estimate angle measures, using 45°, 90°, and 180° as referents, and use the
appropriate tools to measure the given angles; and
b) measure and draw right, acute, and obtuse angles and triangles.
Geometry
6.14 The student will identify, classify, and describe the characteristics of plane figures,
describing their similarities, differences, and defining properties.
6.15 The student will determine congruence of segments, angles, and polygons by direct
comparison, given their attributes. Examples of noncongruent and congruent figures will
be included.
6.16 The student will construct the perpendicular bisector of a line segment and an angle
bisector.
