The Grade 6 Math curriculum is based on the New York State Learning Standards.

Summary of Year Sixth grade mathematics is about (1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; (2) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers; (3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations; and (4) developing understanding of statistical thinking.

The curriculum is divided into 6 learning units or modules:

Module 1: Ratios and Unit Rates

• identify ratios
• calculate rate and unit rate
• convert measurements
• calculate percent of a whole
• calculate the part using percent and whole
• solve real world problems

Module 2: Arithmetic Operations Including Dividing by a Fraction

• add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers
• add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals
• add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions & mixed numbers
• solve real world problems

Module 3: Rational Numbers

• identify integers and their opposites
• order and compare rational numbers including positve and negative numbers
• solve real world problems

Module 4: Expressions and Equations

• evaluate expressions using the order of operations
• solve one step equations
• solve and graph inequalities
• solve real world problems

Module 5: Area, Surface Area, and Volume Problems

• calculate area of triangles and parallelograms
• calculate volume of right rectangular prisms with fractional side lengths
• calculate surace area of 3 dimensional solids
• graph polygons on the coordinate plane
• solve real world problems

Module 6: Statistics

• recognize statistical questions
• analyze the distribution of data
• summarize numerical data sets
