6th Grade Math reinforces basic mathematical concepts and introduces skills that are essential for all students. Concepts, procedures, and vocabulary that students will need in order to be successful in upper-level algebra and geometry courses are introduced and continually practiced. Students begin with a general review of the four basic operations. They are introduced to exponents, geometric formulas, algebraic concepts, ratios, percentages, and adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing signed numbers. 6th Grade Math students work extensively with fractions, mixed numbers, decimals, and estimating. Problem solving strategies are also an integral part of the curriculum.
•To prepare students for Seventh Grade Math.
•For students to demonstrate comprehension and application of the topics contained within this syllabus.
•To prepare students for the PSSA exam by covering the PA state standards and anchors for mathematics.
· Numbers and Operations
Proficiency with calculations involving decimals is expected. The concepts of Fractions and Percents are introduced as part of this unit. Students will be introduced to Integers in early spring.
Measurement units involve formulas, linear, capacity, mass measurements and angles.
This area of study includes vocabulary and plotting points on the coordinate plane.
· Algebraic Concepts
A unit on Hands On Equations will be used to assist students with solving equations. Students will be also introduced to solving two-step equations, using the distributive property and will work with inequalities (solving and graphing).
· Data Analysis and Statistics
These units will include a Statistics project involving surveys, graphs, and analysis using mean, median and mode. Determining the probability of an event and possible combination of events will also be taught.
*The sixth grade math curriculum addresses the Pennsylvania Department of Education's Mathematics Standards and Assessment Anchors for Grade 6.
The most common question we receive is, how is SchoolBlocks inspired by Pinterest? SchoolBlocks eliminates navigation bars and uses a block style layout that’s similar to Pinterest. It creates a unique and engaging browsing experience, optimizes for mobile and removes a lot of navigational complexity.
