6th Grade Math Course Description
In this class, students will build on strengthening their mathematical foundation. We will continue to build on skills previously learned as well as introducing new concepts which include:
*performing fraction and decimal operations
*writing/interpreting/using expressions, equations and inequalities
*ratio concepts and ratio reasoning
*solving problems involving area, surface area and volume
The strategy employed in class is a balanced approach of instruction while allowing abstract thought, reasoning and inquiry which will
help with internalizing concepts with a greater depth of understanding.
