Middle School Grade 6 Mathematics is designed to engage students at every turn. Students have opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge of number manipulation by applying it to real-world scenarios. The course is packed with engaging activities that reinforce and let students practice the skills they learn throughout the course. Interactive learning and innovative videos keep the students engaged throughout.
The instruction in this course focuses on four critical areas: (1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division, and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; (2) completing an understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers; (3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations; and (4) developing an understanding of statistical thinking. The instruction in the advanced course focuses on two extra critical areas: (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; and (2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations.
