## 6th Grade Math B

The second semester of Math 6 introduces students to using the order of operations in solving application problems. Building on these concepts, students are introduced to the basics of algebra and algebraic expressions. They then learn how to apply these problem-solving skills to percents and solving single and multiple step equations.

An exploration of Geometry, probability and statistics concludes the second semester. The course is designed to engage students at every turn. Students have opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge of number manipulation by applying it to real‐world scenarios. The course is packed with engaging activities that reinforce and let students practice the skills they learn throughout the course. Interactive learning and innovative videos keep the students engaged throughout.

The instruction in this course focuses on four critical areas: connecting ratio and rate to whole‐number multiplication and division, and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; acquiring an understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers; writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations; and developing an understanding of statistical thinking.
