Mathematics  Grade 6
In Grade 6, instructional time should focus on four critical areas: (1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; (2) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers; (3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations; and (4) developing understanding of statistical thinking.
Grade 6 Overview
Ratios and Proportional Relationships
* Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems
The Number System
* Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to divide fractions by fractions
* Compute fluently with multidigit numbers and find common factors and multiples
* Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers
Expressions and Equations
* Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions
* Reason about and solve onevariable equations and inequalities
* Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables
Geometry
* Solve realworld and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume
Statistics and Probability
* Develop understanding of statistical variability
* Summarize and describe distributions
