**middle number**is the

**median**.

Graphs are visuals, or diagrams, that show the relationship between the relationship of data (or numbers).

**Tip:** A chart is a type of graph. Other types of graphs include **bar graphs**, **pie charts**, and **line graphs**.

**Acute Triangles**are triangles that have three angles that are

**less than 90 degrees**.

**Absolute Value** is a positive number that tells how far away a number is from zero - like on a number line.

**Tip:** The **absolute value** of a **positive** number is that same number; the absolute value of a **negative** number is that same number but as a positive number.

**Example:**

Find the absolute value. *The absolute value is written using a 'bar' on both sides of the number.*

## Flashcard Content Overview

This flashcard set covers a variety of 6th grade math vocabulary words from A-Z. Each flashcard contains a math word on one side and the definition on the other. Some flashcards may contain images, examples, numbers, or symbols that may represent a term, further explain the term and or its definition. A list of these words and definitions are provided below for further studying and or practice.

## 6th Grade Math Vocabulary Words List

absolute value | Absolute Value is a positive number that tells how far away a number is from zero - like on a number line. |

acute triangle | Acute Triangles are triangles that have three angles that are less than 90 degrees. |

attribute | description or characteristics such as shape, size, or color |

cube | a 3-dimensional solid that has 6 sides, or equal squares |

coefficient | the number that is before the variable, or letter symbol |

constant | in an expression/equation, the constant is the number found after the operation; its value stays the same |

data | numerical information that is used for analysis and in algebraic expressions |

difference | the result of two numbers subtracted from one another |

graphs | Graphs are visuals, or diagrams, that show the relationship between the relationship of data (or numbers). |

histogram | a specific type of bar graph, its bars have no spaces, and is labeled with numbers |

< | less than symbol used to state one number is less than another |

> | greater than symbol used to state one number is greater than another |

maximum | largest amount or number possible or available |

median | In a set of numbers that are listed from smallest to largest, the median is the middle number is the median. |

mode | the number that is seen most frequent or more times than the others in the set. |

mean | The mean is the average of the numbers in a set. |

negative numbers | a number less than zero; uses the - symbol before a number |

positive numbers | a number greater than zero; may use the symbol + or no symbol at all. |

fraction | tells how many parts of a whole you have |

fraction line | A fraction line the slash, or line, between the two numbers. The line can be a / or a -_. Either line separates (divides) two numbers, side-to-side or top and bottom. |

numerator | the number above (or top) the fraction line; or to the left of the slash |

product | the result (answer) of a multiplication problem |

sum | The sum is the answer to an addition problem. |

quotient | A quotient is the answer, or result, to a division problem. |

variable | a symbol, like a letter, that has a unknown value or one that changes |

x-axis | horizontal axis (bottom) on a graph |

y-axis | vertical axis (side; up and down) on a graph |

Cartesian grid | Cartesian Grid is graph paper - used to plot, or make a point, on a graph to show how far along, any increases or improvements have been made; tells you your exact position on a graph using a horizontal axis (x-axis) and a vertical axis (y-axis). |

right angle | an angle that measures exactly 90 degrees (like the corner of a square) |

denominator | the number below (or under) the fraction line or to the right of the slash |

range | The range of a set of numbers is the difference between the biggest and smallest number of the set |

**Absolute Value** is a positive number that tells how far away a number is from zero - like on a number line.

**Tip:** The **absolute value** of a **positive** number is that same number; the absolute value of a **negative** number is that same number but as a positive number.

**Example:**

Find the absolute value. *The absolute value is written using a 'bar' on both sides of the number.*

**median**is the

**middle number**is the

**median**.

**most frequent or more times**than the others in the set.

The **mean** is the **average** of the numbers in a set.

**Tip:** To find the **mean** (or average) you have to first add all the values (or numbers) together. Divide the **sum** by the amount of numbers in the set.

**less than**zero; uses the

**-**symbol before a number

**greater than**zero; may use the symbol

**+**or no symbol at all.

**fraction line**is the slash, or line,

**between**the two numbers. The line can be a

**/**or a

**----**. Either line

**separates (divides)**two numbers, side-to-side or top and bottom.

**above (or top)**the fraction line; or to the

**left**of the slash

**answer**to an

**addition**problem.

**quotient**is the

**answer, or result,**to a

**division**problem.

**horizontal**axis (bottom) on a graph

**vertical**axis (side; up and down) on a graph

**Cartesian Grid** is **graph** paper

- used to plot, or make a point, on a graph to show how far along, any increases or improvements have been made;

tells you your exact position on a graph using a horizontal axis (x-axis) and a vertical axis (y-axis).
