Welcome to 6th grade math. This year we will be expanding upon concepts covered in 5th grade and introduces a large amount of new material. All year long, we work on mastering the Common Core State Standards so that we are prepared for the PARCC. Topics this year will include: use of whole numbers, decimals, fractions and percents in a variety of situations, geometry and measurement, ratios and proportions, application of basic algebraic properties, standard order of operations, data analysis, probability and statistics. Emphasis is placed on reinforcement of computation skills and grade level standards. Problem solving strategies and PARCC readiness is stressed and reinforced throughout the school year. I look forward to an exciting year ahead!
