This workbook is supplemental, and provides additional practice for the topics in the curriculum. I recommend you only purchase it once you are sure the student does need supplemental practice. Learn more.
At the heart of the curriculum are two student worktexts (A and B), each covering about half a year of maths work. These worktexts contain all the instruction and the exercises in the same book — which makes lesson preparation a breeze. The worktexts are written directly to the student, and thus they allow many children (if they can read) to teach themselves and to learn directly from the books.
You will also get separate answer keys, chapter tests, additional cumulative revisions (I do recommend you use at least some of them), and a versatile worksheet maker (Internet access required) for those times when your child needs just a bit more practice.
This curriculum is essentially the same as the U.S. version of Math Mammoth Grade 6, only customised for the Canadian audience in these aspects:
The US version of the curriculum is aligned to the Common Core Standards, which means this curriculum may not be properly aligned to the sixth grade standards in your province. However, you can probably find material for any missing topics in neighbouring grades, which means you can simply reorder the material to solve most incompatibilities between different standards.
The main areas of study in Math Mammoth Grade 6 are:
Please also see the table of contents 6A and 6B (in the sample files), which will let you see the topics covered in more detail.
In sixth grade, students encounter the beginnings of algebra, learning about algebraic expressions, onevariable equations and inequalities, integers, and ratios. We also review and deepen the students' understanding of rational numbers: both fractions and decimals are studied in depth, while percent is a new topic for 6th grade. In geometry, students learn to compute the area of various polygons, and also calculate volume and surface area of various solids. The last major area of study is statistics, where students learn to summarize and describe distributions using both measures of center and variability.
The year starts out with a review of the four operations with whole numbers (including long division), place value, and rounding. Students are also introduced to exponents and do some problem solving.
Chapter 2 starts the study of algebra topics, delving first into expressions and equations. Students practice writing expressions in many different ways, and use properties of operations and the idea of maintaining the equality of both sides of an equation to solve simple onestep equations. We also study briefly inequalities and using two variables.
Chapter 3 has to do with decimals. This is a long chapter, as we review all of decimal arithmetic, just using more decimal digits than in 5th grade. Students also convert measuring units in this chapter.
Ratios is a new topic (chapter 4). Students are already familiar with finding fractional parts from earlier grades, and now it is time to advance that knowledge into the study of ratios, which arise naturally from dividing a quantity into many equal parts. We study such topics as rates, unit rates, equivalent ratios, and problem solving using bar models.
Percent (chapter 5) is an important topic to understand thoroughly, because of its many applications in real life. The goal of this chapter is to develop a basic understanding of percent, to see percentages as decimals, and to learn to calculate discounts.
In chapter 6, we first review prime factorization, and then study the greatest common factor and the least common multiple.
Chapter 7 first presents a thorough review of fraction operations from 5th grade (addition, subtraction, and multiplication). The topic of focus in the chapter is fraction division. Students also do some problem solving with fractions.
In chapter 8, students are introduced to integers. They plot points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane and learn to add and subtract with negative numbers. Multiplication and division of integers are studied in 7th grade.
In geometry (chapter 9), the focus is on the area of polygons. This is studied in a logical progression: first, the area of right triangles, then the area of parallelograms, then, the area of triangles, and lastly the area of polygons. We also review some topics from earlier grades (quadrilaterals, perimeter, basic drawing). Other major topics in this chapter are calculating surface area of some solids using nets, and volume of rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths.
Lastly, in chapter 10, students study statistics. The focus idea is that of a statistical distribution. Students learn about measures of center and measures of variability. They learn how to make dot plots, histograms, boxplots, and stemandleaf plots. All of these lessons are necessary to summarize and analyze distributions.
Here is a list of manipulatives, or actually just measurement tools, that are needed for grade 6.

Math Mammoth Grades 47 Bundle, Canadian Version, $110 USD
Get grades 47 in a discounted bundle — 35% off! This means you save $60 USD (or the equivalent in your currency).
Note: The grades 47 bundle currently includes the Canadian version for grades 46, and the U.S. version for grade 7. We decided to offer this bundle prior to us publishing the grade 7 CA version, so that people can get the discount when purchasing a bundle.
The main possible issue is that the U.S. version of grade 7 uses customary units (inches, feet, miles, pounds, gallons) in several places. However, since Canadians are typically familiar with these, it will probably not pose a big problem.
By having purchased this bundle, you can get the CA version of grade 7 for free once it is published (please contact us for it).
By purchasing any of the books, permission IS granted for the purchaser (teacher or parent) to reproduce this material to be used with his/her students in a teaching situation; not for commercial resale. Please note: you are not permitted to share the material with other teachers or parents.
In other words, you are permitted to make copies for the students/children you are teaching, but not for other teachers' usage.
