Grade 6 students study ratios and proportional relationships, rational numbers, and arithmetic with algebraic expressions. Studnets solve one variable equations and inequalities. They also study relationships between independent and dependent variables. In the geometry unit studnets solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume. Students learn about statistical variability and descirbe distibutions. At the end of the course studnets take the Grade 6 End-of-Grade (EOG) Exam.
