Math 6 will cover all material of a 6th grade class in a child’s regular school, including things he must know for the PARCC Test at the end of 6th Grade. However, the focus is on problem solving with topics studied throughout the school year, all done at a deep level. Many multi-step problems will be done in class and assigned for homework. Students will move into topics of Pre-Algebra, including negative numbers, and the concept of a variable and simple equations and how they are useful. The topics of arithmetic – fractions, decimals, rate, ratio, percentages, will now be deepened with hard word problems on each. Geometry will continue, with more complex area, perimeter and volume problems, and now quadrilaterals and angles in polygons. Along with the rigorous arithmetic program, there will be a heavy component of challenging and exciting Olympiad and contest type problems on topics like probability, sets, counting principles and combinatorics.
