• Math 6

Year in Review 2014-2015

Math studies following the Common Core Essential Standards (CCES) will prepare students for the End-of-Grade Math Test.  We will be following the WS/FCS Scope and Sequence for Math Curriculum, and below is a very basic road map of the year. The state of North Carolina has standards for Mathematical practice for students.  These are as follows:

1.  Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them

2.  Reason abstractly and quantitatively

3.  Construct viable arguments and critique reasoning of others

4.  Model with mathematics

5.  Use appropriate tools strategically

6.  Attend to precision

7.  Look for and make sense of structure

8.  Look for and express regularly in repeated reasoning
