Welcome to 6th Grade Math

Myles Johnston

Curriculum

Sixth grade students will use the Math In Focus curriculum to study the sixth grade math Common Core standards. The program is designed to help students make sense of math problems and persevere when solving them. Learning to model and think mathematically are also important parts of this curriculum.

Sixth grade's primary areas of study are: rates and ratios; multiplication and division of fractions; rational numbers and number lines; variables in expressions and equations; measures of central tendency and variability; area, surface area, and volume; and problem solving skills.

About Me

My name is Myles Johnston. I was born and raised in northern Massachusetts but now make my home in Hampton, NH. I have been working in education for 8 years, with the last four teaching math at Nanakuli Elementary on the island of Oahu. I am excited to join the David R. Cawley Middle School team. I look forward to sharing my experiences with and learning from the Hooksett community.
