Welcome to 6th Grade Math!

In Grade 6 math, instructional time will focus 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 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 understanding of statistical thinking. Students will not be using a textbook.  They will be required to take quality notes and have them available for the daily lessons, quizzes, or tests.  Lessons will require the students to apply and extend previous understandings of the concepts to answer the problems.
