Math 6 deepens many topics seen previously - ratios, rates, percentages, distance-rate-time problems. There are many "layers," to these topics, which kids must master, and not only harder procedures but also serious word problems on all these topics will be given all year. We will also study the circumference and area of a circle, and more complicated triangles and quadrilaterals. Math 6 also begins PreAlgebra/Algebra topics such as exponents, distributing, like terms, algebraic substitution, simple equations and inequalities, and Order of Operations with fractions. All are done at a beginner level.
Forming an algebraic expression or equation, from descriptive words will be a topic all year.
Math 6 is the last "grammar school" year, and has an intensive program to finalize the topics kids have learned to date.
