Math 6 A/B
Mathematics is the study of the patterns around us. Using the tools in this course, you will learn more about how to solve problems using expressions and equations. When you understand how to work with numbers in equations, and how to manipulate equations, you can more easily solve problems you encounter in everyday life. By the end of Semester A, you will be able to do the following: Analyze proportional relationships, and determine the ratios that describe them. Use your own words to describe the relationship a ratio describes. Divide fractions by fractions. Work fluently with fractions and decimals, converting fractions to decimals and vice versa. Visualize numbers and ordered pairs by using number lines and the coordinate plane. Determine solutions to inequalities on number lines. Evaluate expressions using absolute values. By the end of
Semester B, you will be able to do the following: Evaluate exponential expressions. Work with expressions in which letters stand for numbers. Describe the properties of operations to determine whether two expressions are equivalent. Evaluate equations and inequalities. Analyze real-world problems and use variables to solve them. Determine the area of a triangle, rectangle, or polygon made up of triangles and rectangles. Determine the volume of right rectangular prisms. Recognize questions that can be answered using statistics. Describe different methods of determining the center of a set of numbers.
