Advanced Math 6 students study Grade 6 standards and part of the Grade 7 standards. Topics include ratios and proportional relationships, rational numbers, and arithmetic with algebraic expressions. Students solve one and multi-step equations and inequalities with variables on the same side. They also study relationships between independent and dependent variables. In the geometry unit, students solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume. Students learn about statistical variability and how to describe distributions. Students learn how to informally draw inferences about populations. At the end of the course, students take the Grade 6 End-of-Grade (EOG) Exam.
