• Class/Course Description:
     
    6th Grade Mathematics
    The primary focal points at Grade 6 are using ratios to describe direct proportional relationships involving number, geometry, measurement, probability, and adding and subtracting decimals and fractions.  Throughout mathematics in sixth grade, students build a foundation of basic understandings in number, operation, and quantitative reasoning; patterns, relationships, and algebraic thinking; geometry and spatial reasoning; measurement; and probability and statistics.  Students use concepts, algorithms, and properties of rational numbers to explore mathematical relationships and to describe increasingly complex situations.  Students connect verbal, numeric, graphic, and symbolic representations of relationships.  Students use geometric properties and relationships, as well as spatial reasoning, to model and analyze situations and solve problems.  Students communicate information about geometric figures or situations by quantifying attributes, generalize procedures from measurement experiences, and use the procedures to solve problems.

Students communicate information about geometric figures or situations by quantifying attributes, generalize procedures from measurement experiences, and use the procedures to solve problems. This is a focused, fast-paced course that emphasizes research methodology as a basis for problem solving with more depth and/or complexity. Students are expected to participate in class discussions, and complete group or individual projects, and individual assignments.
