In the sixth grade curriculum, students use Explorations in Core Mathematics for Common Core. Students will make the transition from elementary to middle level thinking and learning. They will make sense of problems and persevere in solving them, reason abstractly and quantitatively, construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, model with mathematics, use appropriate tools strategically, attend to precision, look for and make use of structure and look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
Glencoe will be used as a supplement to our classroom text. The Glencoe program has a Personal Tutor, online resources for extra practice and online quizzes. The Personal Tutor takes the children step-by-step through problems similar to ones taught in class. Children can monitor their understanding by using the extra practice and online quizzes.
