Explore the adventures of Timmy as he tackles the 6th grade math standards of the Common Core. Timmy goes from the beaches of the Cape Cod to the heights of Vail, with a stop in at the Glass House in Denver for some bacon as he journeys through 52 problems to be used as bell ringers. This eBook contains 52 problems and answers that can be used as warm up problems for the students. It contains at least 1 problem per standard (6th grade Common Core standards).

Use ratio reasoning to convert measurement units; manipulate and transform units appropriately when multiplying or dividing quantities.
Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.
Solve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed. For example, if it took 7 hours to mow 4 lawns, then at that rate, how many lawns could be mowed in 35 hours? At what rate were lawns being mowed?
Make tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole-number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Use tables to compare ratios.
Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.
