## Concepts tested in 6th Grade TAKS Math Assessment
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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.
- 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
