Grade 6 Mathematics

In Grade 6, instruction will focus on four critical areas:

  • Connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems;
  • Completing 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 understanding of statistical thinking.

Students will:

  • Students will engage in mathematically rich investigations in the classroom, guided by the CMP2 curriculum.
  • Students will have clear opportunities for enrichment and support in each unit of instruction
  • Students will have the opportunity to participate in one of two extra-curricular math clubs at the Upper Campus: one club will be focused on supporting students with foundational content, and another club will be focused on offering students enrichment opportunities focused on problem solving and mathematical connections
  • Students will engage in online activities, inside and outside of the classroom, which will deepen their understanding of mathematics.
