Course Description

The sixth grade math course is the beginning of a formal approach to solving math problems. The emphasis is not on the answer to a math problem, rather the steps to reach the solution. Operational competency continues to be taught with a focus on fraction operations. Other topics include geometry, proportional reasoning, algebra-readiness concepts, and statistics. Topics are closely aligned with the sixth grade NYS curriculum that can be found at EngageNY. All sixth graders will take the Sixth Grade New York State Assessment given May 1-3, 2018. In addition, students will take a quarterly assessment at the end of 10 weeks, a cumulative midterm at the end of 20 weeks, and a cumulative final exam at the end of the year.

Here are some questions to consider:

  • Does your child know their multiplication facts through 12's? 
  • Can he/she divide with two and three-digit divisors? 
  • Does he/she understand the difference between a fraction and a whole number? A decimal and a whole number?  
Review of these skills should be part of their study routine at home until proficiency is achieved

Study halls are a good opportunity for your child to get help from a teacher with topics currently being studied in math class. The learning center is also available to students for additional help.
