## 6th Grade Math Curriculum

In sixth grade, students will develop proficiency in a variety of topics such as proportional relationships, percentages, rational numbers, equations, inequalities, geometry, graphing, and probability. A problem-based curriculum will be used to generate discussion, perseverance, and enjoyment of mathematics. Students learn math by doing math, solving problems in mathematical and real-world contexts, and constructing arguments using precise language.

We follow the

* Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

* Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers.

* Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.

* Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations.

* Draw, construct, and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them.

* Solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area, and volume.

* Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population.

* Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations.

* Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.

The

1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively

3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others

4. Model with mathematics

5. Use appropriate tools strategically

6. Attend to precision

7. Look for and make use of structure

8. Look for an express regularity in repeated reasoning

While achieving the math standards, focus will also be placed on the following

* Demonstrate the mental habits of precise, determined, careful, and accurate questioning, inquiry, and reasoning in the pursuit of transcendent truths.

* Develop lines of inquiry (as developmentally appropriate) to understand why things are true and why they are false.

* Have faith in the glory and dignity of human reason as both a gift from God and a reflection of Him in whose image and likeness we are made.

* Explain how mathematics in its reflection of the good, true, and beautiful reveals qualities of being and the presence of God.

* Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers.

* Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.

* Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations.

* Draw, construct, and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them.

* Solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area, and volume.

* Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population.

* Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations.

* Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.
