What we need to know

Math is such an important subject. We learn so much in the sixth grade. For example some of the things we will work on this year are:

* Understanding ratio concepts and using ratio reasoning to solve problems

*Apply and and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to divide fractions by fractions.

* Compute fluently with multi-digit numbers and find common factors and multiples

*Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers

* Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions

* Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities

* Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables

* Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume

* Develop understanding of statistical variability
