Instructional time focuses on introductory topics for 6th grade math. The areas will include: (1) develop understanding of ratio and rate and use multiplicative reasoning to solve ratio and rate problems; (2) Develop competency of division of whole numbers and fractions and extend the notion of number to the system of rational numbers; and (3) developing understanding of expressions, equations and inequalities. This is a blended course model, using Carnegie Mathia software.
Success in this class will give your child the opportunity to place at a higher level. Advanced placement is not guaranteed upon completion of one or both modules of Math 6 in Kyrene Summer Academy. Students would have to take a mid-term and final assessment last year to show proficiency in order to advance.
2 Options for students participating in the class:
1.Preview the 6th grade math class.
2.Potential acceleration into advanced math course
Discuss with your child’s current mathematics teacher to verify that this is an accurate fit for your student.
