Course Description
    Math 6 is a rigorous, standards-based course focused on helping students develop multiple strategies to solve problems and to recognize the connections between concepts. Students are encouraged to investigate concepts, communicate their thinking and generalize.

    Course Outcomes

    Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

    • Collect, organize and display data in multiple ways.
    • Analyze data using measures of central tendency.
    • Represent data sets using various methods and analyze how changes in data impact the representation.
    • Represent and compare quantities using manipulatives, diagrams and number expressions.
    • Represent multiplication using rectangular arrays.
    • Model integers.
    • Make sense of multiple representations of portions (decimal, fraction, percent) and convert from one form to the other.
    • Compare fractions and generate equivalent fractions.
    • Recognize ratios in tables and graphs and solve corresponding problems.
    • Use ratios to describe relationships with similar plane figures and other situations.
    • Use models and standard algorithms for computations with fractions and decimals.
    • Simplify variables expressions by combining like terms and using the Distributive Property.
    • Evaluate variable expressions and solve simple equations and inequalities.
    • Solve distance, rate and time problems.
    • Solve percent problems including those with discounts, interest and tips.
    • Compute area, surface area and volume of rectangular solids.
    • Represent solids using nets.
