Many valuable skills and concepts are introduced, taught and reviewed during sixth grade math. These include equivalencies, measurements, geometric properties, data analysis, algebraic equations and problem solving.
During sixth grade, we are getting our students ready for the higher level math and algebra they will focus on in middle school. Because of this, sixth grade math requires a firm understanding of the four operations (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing). So, students, if you feel you need to brush up on any of these skills…make sure to practice, practice, practice! You can click on the times tables and flash card links below to practice your multiplication and division facts!
We use the Harcourt Math series to introduce, teach and review all of the sixth grade math content standards. Click on the Harcourt Math book cover to the left to see a glossary of math vocabulary words and definitions we will use throughout the school year.
The students also participate in Math Fact-A-Thon throughout the school year to improve on their multiplication and division facts. The students who have these facts mastered will receive Math Fact-A-Thon awards at the end of the year on Honor’s Day!
