Mathematics Grade 6 - Common Core (2434) CA

Grade 6 Mathematics is a full-year math course focusing on number skills and numerical literacy, with an introduction to rational numbers and the tools needed for algebra. In this course, students will gain fundamental experience with number theory and operations, including integers and rational numbers. This course also integrates rate and ratio relationships and proportional reasoning throughout the units, as well as introduces students to geometric and statistical concepts.

By the end of the course, students will be expected to do the following:

  • Perform all four operations, including division, on integers and rational numbers.
  • Convert between fractions, decimals, and percentages.
  • Represent ratio and rate relationships using tables of equivalent ratios, double number line diagrams, tape diagrams, equations, and the coordinate plane.
  • Solve ratio and rate problems using proportional reasoning.
  • Calculate perimeters and areas of regular plane shapes and calculate volume of right prisms. 
  • Use the number line to find the absolute value or the opposite of a rational number. 
  • Simplify and evaluate variable expressions; solve and graph one-step equations and inequalities. 
  • Plot ordered pairs on the coordinate plane and use reflections over the coordinate axis.    
  • Represent data on statistical graphs, including histograms, dot plots, and box plots. 
  • Develop understanding of statistical variability and recognize measures of center and variation.
