Sixth Grade Mathematics

Sixth graders complete a year of dynamic College Preparatory Math (CPM) curriculum, drawing from the Core Connections, Courses 1 and 2 texts. Pre-Algebra skills are developed, refined, and extended. CPM’s unique presentation encourages students to make connections, discover relationships, figure out what strategies can be used to solve problems, and explain their thinking. Learning in community and fostering a sense of fun are at the foundation of classroom culture in sixth grade math.
