Math 6 & Pre Algebra

Mrs. George

MATH 6

The sixth grade math curriculum is designed to expand students’ knowledge of previously introduced mathematical concepts. The curriculum is vigorous in scope and addresses all aspects of the PA Common Core math standards. Content will include: Number Concepts, Comparing and Ordering Numbers, Computation, Estimation and Problem Solving, Ratio, Proportion and Percent, Patterns, Expressions, Equations and Inequalities, The Coordinate Plane, Geometric Concepts, Measurement, Data Analysis and Probability. Students will be expected to review concepts taught in class through hands-on activities, guided practice, cooperative learning experiences, daily homework assignments and various assessments. Once introduced, concepts will be developed to reinforce retention. This course is designed to further extend critical thinking skills and real world applications.

 

Pre Algebra

The Pre Algebra curriculum will focus on four critical areas of the common core standards: developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and drawing inferences about populations based on samples. In addition to this curriculum statistics and geometry (6th grade standards) will also be covered to prepare the students for the PSSA's.

 

Daily Expectations:

Students are expected to come to class prepared. This includes arriving on time with iPad (fully charged), folder, 1-subject notebook (optional), and a pencil.

 

Grading Scale:

90-100 – A

80-89 – B
