6th Grade Do Now Math Worksheets

We start to see middle school level math skills come out at this age. These worksheets are designed and aligned directly in response to the core Math Learning Standards. These sheets provide a great starting point or review for you and your classes.

Basic Level Sheets

  1. Version 1 - Common Factors, Lowest Terms, Decimal Conversions: This is a real quick one. It has a large number of skills to cover, so you do want to use it later in the school year.
  2. Version 2 - Prime Factorization, Expressions, Equivalent Ratios: This covers a great deal of factor based operations for you to ponder.
  3. Version 3 - Percentage of a Whole, Long Decimal Division: We do division with large decimal numbers and work on percentages of numbers.
  4. Version 4 - Long Division and Relative Temperature: Super, mega long division; as our students call it! Then we see which is colder.
  5. Version 5 - Negative Number Comparisons and Expressions: We start to jump back into number line comparisons.
  6. Version 6 - Central Tendency: More work with central tendencies. We focus on temperature this time.
  7. Version 7 - Least Common Denominators and Long Division: We find the least common denominators within fraction sets and division.
  8. Version 8 - Evaluating Expressions and Lowest Terms: The order of operation problems should be read through first the follow it up with lowest terms.
  9. Version 9 - Equivalent Ratios and Fractions As Decimals: The equivalent ratios are purposely simple. More difficult versions can be found in the advanced level.
  10. Version 10 - Central Tendency (Bigger Data Set): We sort and interpret data from the scores of a recent science test.

Intermediate Level Sheets

  1. Version 1 - Fractional Word Problems: The problems sure do get a great deal more fun to read at this level.
  2. Version 2 - Deep Thinking Word Problems: Make sure that kids outline the problems before attempting them. There are more than 3 ways to do each of the problems.
  3. Version 3 - Percentages of Numbers and Equivalent Expressions: These problems are critical skills in the real world. How many times have you heard of a percentage raise you would be receiving and rushed to do this type of math?
  4. Version 4 - Negatives and the Number Line: We look at a number line and explain movement within the line.
  5. Version 5 - Coordinates and Quadrants: We plot points and determine the quadrant they lie within.
  6. Version 6 - Word Based Operations and Surface Area: Be careful with the expression conversion, they can trip you up sometimes.
  7. Version 7 - Equivalent Expressions: The answers to these can be done hundreds of ways. We would suggest to peer review this.
  8. Version 8 - Area of Triangles Using Cubic Units: Use the unit outline to help you solve this one. It is really interesting to see the different strategies that kids will use.
  9. Version 9 - Percentages of Numbers, Equal Expressions, and GCF: This one covers a vast set of skills. This can be used as a refresher or review.
  10. Version 10 - Moderate Word Problems: These problems might take a good bit of your time. We find the last question to really motivate students.

Advanced Level Sheets

  1. Version 1 - Difficult Word Problems: These questions we really stimulate some deep thoughts.
  2. Version 2 - More Word Problems: Students will work through a number of unique scenarios and situations.
  3. Version 3 - Real Life Story Word Problems: These word problems require a number of steps. We suggest outlining them prior to completing each problem.
  4. Version 4 - Distance Between Point On Coordinates: Finding the units of distance between two set points is an interesting predicament. It is great to compare this to city blocks. For example, up one block and over two.
  5. Version 5 - Real Situation Word Problems: While the problems seem short, they require some keen algebra.
  6. Version 6 - Making Histograms: We would encourage you to let kids devise their own scale and range to develop their skills further.
  7. Version 7 - Central Tendency: Students start to enter the field of statistics. We look at averages, ranges, frequent data, and medians.
  8. Version 8 - Multi-step problems: There are a number of steps to each of these problems. They really help hone algebra skills.
  9. Version 9 - Mixed Difficulty Word Problems: These word problems touch on a wide range of skills. They really cover a good bit of material.
  10. Version 10 - Simple Histograms: The scale will probably give some kids some trouble this is good practice for making sure that they outline the graph before creating it.
