6th Grade – Math

Philosophy
God created humans with a rational and inquiring mind. He blessed them with the ability to count, tell time and make change. In Mathematics we will explore and develop this God given gift systematically. As the Bible says “precept upon precept, line upon line …” (Isaiah 28:10), students will systematically build up their knowledge of Mathematics. As they learn the different disciplines of Mathematics students will recognize the logic and order God imbued in the world and by implication that God is a god of logic and order. They will develop a greater understanding and appreciation of God through their study of mathematics.

Course Objectives
Grade 6 math students develop skills using basic operations with whole numbers, decimals, fractions, and mixed numbers that assist them to operate in real life situations. Along with instruction in place value, number theory, measurement, geometry, and graphing, students are introduced to integers, percents, ratios, rates, proportions, circle and surface area measurement, and volume. .(ESLR: NLL) At each step, we want to enable students to see how God’s plan for the world fit and reflect his order. (ESLR: RUC) As students learn pre-algebra concepts, they will be able to create and solve simple variable equations. .(ESLR: ET) Embedded in each unit of study, various problem-solving strategies are explored and applied to practical problems. (ESLR: SCW) Students are also introduced to mathematical vocabulary to explain and communicate problems and solutions accurately. (ESLR: DC)
