Vocabulary:Ratio Unit Rate This year in mathematics, we 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. Students in Grade 6 will also build on their understanding of geometry by reasoning about relationships among shapes to determine area, surface area, and volume. |
