Sixth Grade Math
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.
