Math 6


Math 6 builds skills and concepts using incremental instruction and continual practice and review to ensure mastery and prepare students for upper level algebra and geometry. Basic mathematical concepts and skills are reviewed and reinforced: word problems, functions and coordinate graphing, integers, exponents, divisibility concepts, ratios, proportions, statistics, probability, circumference, and angles.


Math is everywhere! It is a subject you will use the rest of your life! During this sixth grade math course, we will build a foundation for your middle school math courses. We want to make sure you have a firm foundation to prepare you for success throughout the rest of your school years and life. In this course, you’ll learn how to analyze data, create geometric constructions, figure out word problems, solve equations, investigate, explore, and so much more! Throughout the course we will build on prior knowledge you have gained and will guide you in incremental instruction through our teacher-made videos, slides, class discussions, and the use of the Saxon textbook. We will continually review and reinforce concepts to ensure understanding, success, and confidence in your math skills so that you are ready for your Math 7 course.

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
