Course Description
In Grade 6, instructional time will 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.
Topics to be covered
Sixth grade students will be required to complete subject matter related to the NC Standard Course of Study performance standards. For further information regarding our standards please refer to the following website: http://www.dpi.state.nc.us
