Course Description:

As the 6th grade students are eager to learn as they start Middle School, Grade 6 Mathematics will introduce them to new material in a challenging but exciting way. The students are to expect a follow-up of the basic mathematical skills they have learned in their elementary grades. They have mastered the four basic fundemental operations and are now ready for a more challenging year of computations, equations, and mathematical problems.

       Grade 6 Math will enhance the basic math skills, number sense & operations, using formulas, and problem solving. The students will also be studying probability and statistics where they will learn how to analyze and interpret graphs and data.

      Geometry will also be taught to them, where they are to learn about the different geometric figures. The latter part of the course will be on measurements, and how to solve for perimeter, circumference, area, volume, and more.

      6th grade Math will be an encouraging, fun-fulled year of learning numbers which the students will always look forward to.
