Welcome to 6th grade math! I am very excited about this school year. Here is some information that may be useful about what we will learn in 6th grade math:

North Carolina will still teach the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in Mathematics as the curriculum in grades K-12 this year.  I encourage you to look over this curriculum at the following website: corestandards.org/the-standards/mathematics.  The two parts of the math curriculum are focused on rigor, higher order thinking skills, and career and college readiness.

Content Standards - The CCSS content standards in 6th grade are built around five “domains” including Ratios & Proportional Relationships, The Number System, Expressions & Equations, Geometry, and Statistics & Probability.

Mathematical Practices Standards - The mathematical practices standards are eight standards that are consistent throughout every grade and give a focus to how teachers should be encouraging students to think mathematically.

Please feel free to contact me through email with any questions you may have throughout the year. Thank you!
