Sixth Grade Math 1 and Math 2
The sixth grade mathematics curriculum builds on those skills introduced in previous grades. The skills we will be working on this year serve as the foundation for pre-algebra.
The textbook for Math 1 is Big Ideas Math Green by Ron Larson and Laurie Boswell
The textbook for Math 2 is Big Ideas Math Advanced 1 by Ron Larson and Laurie Boswell
The first ten chapters of both books are identical. These chapters serve as units for our class.
-Numerical Expressions and Factors
-Fractions and Decimals
-Algebraic Expressions and Properties
-Areas of Polygons
-Ratios and Rates
-Integers and the Coordinate Plane
-Equations and Inequalities
-Surface Area and Volume
Both classes will cover the same material that serves as the foundational skills for pre-algebra. Math 2 will move at a quicker pace and go deeper on the various units. Math 2 will cover an additional 4-5 chapters.
-Expressions and Equations
-Ratios and Proportions
