## 6th Grade Math A

Students begin the first semester of Math 6 with a review of basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole numbers. More complex concepts are built upon these basics. Students learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide integers, decimals and fractions.

The course also includes lessons on ratios and proportions. 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.
