Math 6 The emphasis in sixth grade math is mastery of the basic operations using integers, fractions, decimals, and percents. Students will solve straightforward numerical equations, and will write and solve word problems for all concepts covered. The class will explore algebraic expressions and solve two step equations. Statistics and data displays will be part of our work as well. When students answer problems on homework, tests and quizzes, they will be required to show the detailed steps that led them to their answer. They will also be encouraged to explain concepts and to apply them. Organization and selfevaluation will be underlying themes. Advanced Math 6 All students will be developing their problem solving skills. Students will be encouraged to strive for success independently and as a member of a group or the class. Some students will be stretching themselves by trying to figure out ways to apply the concept that is being introduced. Others will be trying to find a way to make something that is clear to them understandable to someone else, and in doing so they will inevitably deepen their understanding of a concept and its application in the real world.
