The primary focus of the sixth grade units is the number strand. Students explore the connection between fractions, decimals and percents, and delve into the concept of proportionality as they work with scale factors. Investigating and inventing a variety of number systems help students better understand the concepts of place value.
The algebra strand begins in sixth grade by providing students conceptual understanding as they find, continue, and generate rules from patterns. Data analysis and probability as well as geometry are addressed in units that round out the sixth grade year.
