Positive & Negative Numbers

6th Grade

Alabama Course of Study Standards: 9

Use signed numbers to describe quantities that have opposite directions or values and to represent quantities in real-world contexts.

Arkansas Academic Standards: 6.NS.C.5

Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values, explaining the meaning of 0 (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, credits/debits, positive/negative electric charge)

Arizona - K-12 Academic Standards: 6.NS.C.5

Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values. Use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world context, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.

Common Core State Standards: Math.6.NS.5 or 6.NS.C.5

Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, credits/debits, positive/negative electric charge); use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.

Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE): 6.NR.3.1

Identify and compare integers and explain the meaning of zero based on multiple authentic situations.

North Carolina - Standard Course of Study: 6.NS.5

Understand and use rational numbers to:
  • Describe quantities having opposite directions or values.
  • Represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.
  • Understand the absolute value of a rational number as its distance from 0 on the number line to:
    • Interpret absolute value as magnitude for a positive or negative quantity in a real-world context.
    • Distinguish comparisons of absolute value from statements about order.

New York State Next Generation Learning Standards: 6.NS.5

Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values. Use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.
e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, debits/credits, positive/negative electric charge

Tennessee Academic Standards: 6.NS.C.5

Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, credits/debits, positive/negative electric charge); use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.

Alabama Course of Study Standards: 10.a

Define opposites as numbers located on opposite sides of 0 and the same distance from 0 on a number line.

Arkansas Academic Standards: 6.NS.C.6.A

  • Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line
  • Recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself (e.g., -(-3) = 3, and that 0 is its own opposite)

Arizona - K-12 Academic Standards: 6.NS.C.6a

Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line; recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself and that 0 is its own opposite.

Common Core State Standards: Math.6.NS.6a or 6.NS.C.6.A

Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS): 6.NS.6.a

Mississippi College- and Career-Readiness Standards: 6.NS.6a

Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line; recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself, e.g., –(–3) = 3, and that 0 is its own opposite.

Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE): 6.NR.3.2

Order and plot integers on a number line and use distance from zero to discover the connection between integers and their opposites.

North Carolina - Standard Course of Study: 6.NS.6.a

On a number line:
  • Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 and that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself.
  • Find and position rational numbers on a horizontal or vertical number line.

New York State Next Generation Learning Standards: 6.NS.6.a

Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line. Recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself, and that 0 is its own opposite.
e.g., With the number 3, – (–3) = 3.

Tennessee Academic Standards: 6.NS.C.6.a

Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line; recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself. For example, - (-3) = 3, and that 0 is its own opposite.

Pennsylvania Core Standards: CC.2.1.6.E.4

Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to thesystem of rational numbers.

Pennsylvania Core Standards: M06.A-N.3.1.1

Represent quantities in real-world contexts using positive and negative numbers, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, credits/debits, positive/negative electric charge).

Pennsylvania Core Standards: M06.A-N.3.1.2

Determine the opposite of a number and recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself (e.g., –(–3) = 3; 0 is its own opposite).

Pennsylvania Core Standards: M06.A-N.3.1.3

Locate and plot integers and other rational numbers on a horizontal or vertical number line; locate and plot pairs of integers and other rational numbers on a coordinate plane.

Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE): 6.NR.3.1
