This workbook is supplemental, and provides additional practice for the topics in the curriculum. I recommend you purchase it only after 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 US version of Math Mammoth Grade 6, only customised for the international audience in these aspects:
In moneyrelated word problems, the symbol used is "$" (dollar).
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 country. 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.
In sixth year, students encounter the beginnings of algebra, algebraic expressions, onevariable equations and inequalities, integers and ratios. We also revise and deepen the students' understanding of rational numbers: both fractions and decimals are studied in depth, while percent is a new topic for 6th year. 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 summarise and describe distributions using both measures of centre and variability.
The year starts out with a revision of the four operations with whole numbers (including long division), place value and rounding. Students are also introduced to exponents and they do some problem solving.
Chapter 2 starts the study of algebra topics, delving first into expressions and equations. Students practise 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 briefly study inequalities and using two variables.
Chapter 3 has to do with decimals. This is a long chapter, as we revise all of decimal arithmetic, just using more decimal digits than in 5th year. Students also convert measuring units in this chapter.
Ratios (chapter 4) is a new topic. Students are already familiar with finding fractional parts from earlier years, and now it is time to advance that knowledge into the study of ratios, which arise 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.
Chapter 6 first revises prime factorisation and then applies those principles to using the greatest common factor to simplify fractions and the least common multiple to find common denominators. After a thorough revision of the fraction operations from fifth year (addition, subtraction and multiplication), Chapter 7 provides a thorough revision of the fraction operations from fifth year and includes ample practice in solving problems with fractions.
Chapter 8 introduces students to integers (signed numbers). They plot points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane, reflect and translate simple figures, and learn to add and subtract with negative numbers. (The multiplication and division of integers will be studied in 7th year.)
The next chapter, Geometry, focuses on calculating the area of polygons. After a brief revision of terminology for triangles and quadrilaterals and drawing fundamentals, this new topic is presented simply in a logical progression: first, the area of a right triangle; next, the area of a parallelogram; then, the area of any triangle; and finally, the area of a polygon. The chapter then expands the concepts learned into developing nets for simple solids to calculate their surface area and to figuring the volume of rectangular prisms with edges of fractional length.
The final chapter is about statistics. Beginning with the concept of a statistical distribution, students learn about measures of centre and measures of variability. They also learn how to make dot plots, histograms, boxplots, and stemandleaf plots as ways to summarise and analyse distributions.
Please also see the table of contents for 6A and 6B, which will let you see a detailed list of the topics covered.
Here is a list of manipulatives, or actually just measurement tools, that are needed for grade 6.
