Math 6 focal areas include number and operations, proportionality; expressions, equations, and relationships; and measurement and data. Students use concepts, algorithms, and properties of rational numbers to explore mathematical relationships and to describe increasingly complex situations and connect multiple representations of relationships. Students communicate information about geometric figures or situations by quantifying attributes, generalize procedures from measurement experiences, and use the procedures to solve problems.
MATH LAB 6
Math Lab 6 allows support for students who evidence foundational weaknesses in mathematics. Students receive daily instruction in mathematics producing greater understanding and success. The curriculum is aligned to 6th grade math but the pacing is more individualized based on the students’ needs. Administrator or Counselor placement based on 5th STAAR Math score and classroom performance.
HONORS MATH 6
Honors Math 6 includes the entire 6th grade and nearly half of the 7th grade mathematics in order to accelerate student preparation for Algebra I in 8th grade. The PreAP Math 6 GT content is taught at an accelerated pace and with greater depth and complexity in content.
Calculators are available to students for in-class use in appropriate math courses. Algebra I and 8th Grade math students are encouraged to purchase their own graphing calculator for personal use on homework and projects. A calculator model that offer capabilities and features similar to those of the TI-Nspire is recommended.
