Concepts tested in 6th Grade TAKS Math Assessment

TAKS Math Objective 1: Number, operation, and quantitative reasoning

  • compare and order non-negative rational numbers
  • generate equivalent forms of rational numbers including whole numbers, fractions, and decimals
  • use integers to represent real-life situations
  • write prime factorizations using exponents;
  • identify factors of a positive integer, common factors, and the greatest common factor of a set of positive integers;
  • identify multiples of a positive integer and common multiples and the least common multiple of a set of positive integers.
  • model addition and subtraction situations involving fractions with objects, pictures, words, and numbers
  • use addition and subtraction to solve problems involving fractions and decimals
  • use multiplication and division of whole numbers to solve problems including situations involving equivalent ratios and rates
  • estimate and round to approximate reasonable results and to solve problems where exact answers are not required
  • use order of operations to simplify whole number expressions (without exponents) in problem solving situations

TAKS Math Objective 2: Patterns, relationships, and algebraic thinking

  • use ratios to describe proportional situations
  • represent ratios and percents with [concrete] models, fractions, and decimals
  • use ratios to make predictions in proportional situations
  • use tables and symbols to represent and describe proportional and other relationships such as those involving conversions, arithmetic sequences (with a constant rate of change), perimeter and area
  • use tables of data to generate formulas representing relationships involving perimeter, area, volume of a rectangular prism, etc.
  • formulate equations from problem situations described by linear relationships

TAKS Math Objective 3: Geometry and Spatial Reasoning

  • use angle measurements to classify angles as acute, obtuse, or right
  • identify relationships involving angles in triangles and quadrilaterals
  • describe the relationship between radius, diameter, and circumference of a circle
  • locate and name points on a coordinate plane using ordered pairs of non-negative rational numbers

TAKS Math Objective 4: Measurement

  • estimate measurements (including circumference) and evaluate reasonableness of results
  • select and use appropriate units, tools, or formulas to measure and to solve problems involving length (including perimeter), area, time, temperature, volume, and weight
  • measure angles
  • convert measures within the same measurement system (customary and metric) based on relationships between units

TAKS Math Objective 5: Probability and Statistics

  • construct sample spaces using lists and tree diagrams
  • find the probabilities of a simple event and its complement and describe the relationship between the two
  • select and use an appropriate representation for presenting and displaying different graphical representations of the same data including line plot, line graph, bar graph, and stem and leaf plot
  • identify mean (using [concrete objects and] pictorial models), median, mode, and range of a set of data
  • sketch circle graphs to display data
  • solve problems by collecting, organizing, displaying, and interpreting data.

TAKS Math Objective 6: Underlying processes and mathematical tools

  • identify and apply mathematics to everyday experiences, to activities in and outside of school, with other disciplines, and with other mathematical topics
  • use a problem-solving model that incorporates understanding the problem, making a plan, carrying out the plan, and evaluating the solution for reasonableness
  • select or develop an appropriate problem-solving strategy from a variety of different types, including drawing a picture, looking for a pattern, systematic guessing and checking, acting it out, making a table, working a simpler problem, or working backwards to solve a problem
  • communicate mathematical ideas using language, efficient tools, appropriate units, and graphical, numerical, physical, or algebraic mathematical models
  • make conjectures from patterns or sets of examples and nonexamples
  • validate his/her conclusions using mathematical properties and relationships
