__Mrs. Rayman's Advanced Math__

Sixth Grade Advanced Mathematics features content aligned with the Michigan Department of Education 6th and 7th grade level content expectations. The course will move at a faster pace and delve deeper into mathematical concepts. It is designed to prepare students for 7th Grade Math Plus and Algebra I in 8th Grade (successful completion of Algebra I meets high school graduation requirements).

**6th Grade Topics:**- Calculate conversions and order values on a number line for fractions, decimals, and percents.
- Add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions, decimals, and positive/negative numbers.
- Use and understand the purpose of rates and ratios in real life situations.
- Solve simple linear functions (y = mx) using tables, equations, and graphs.
- Use verbal models to write expressions and equations with variables.
- Use the Order of Operations to solve one and two step equations.
- Manipulate two dimensional shapes and understand the relationship of angles (interior and exterior).
- Understand congruence and make transformations of figures on a coordinate grid.
- Calculate surface area and volume in two dimensional and three dimensional shapes.
- Understand and calculate the probability of a given situation.
- Convert measurements within U.S. Customary and Metric Systems.

**7th Grade Topics:**- Understand and solve problems involving rates, ratios, and proportions.
- Develop computational fluency with rational numbers.
- Understand and apply directly proportional relationships and relates to linear relationships.
- Understand and represent linear functions (y = mx + b) using tables, equations, and graphs while developing the concept of constant increase and constant decrease.
- Simplify and manipulate expressions and equations describing contextual situations to solve meaningful problems.
- Use geometric constructions to better understand aspects of lines and angles; scale geometric shapes to develop an understanding of similarity.
- Represent, interpret, and calculate descriptive statistics about a set of data.

**Advanced 6th Grade Math Homework**__Completing math homework is essential to success in math. Expect homework in math every day as a practice or for exploration of new concepts. Homework is not a punishment, but a valuable tool to help your student succeed in math. All assignments should be labeled with the student’s first and last name, date, period, and assignment title. Parents, your child will always receive written and oral directions for all class work, homework, and tests.__
