Striving for EXCELLENCE and PERSEVERING through our focus and practices.....


Tennessee Math Standards
In Grade 6, instructional time will focus on four critical areas:(1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems;(2) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers;(3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations; and(4) developing understanding of statistical thinking.
Math Practices
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 4. Model with mathematics. 5. Use appropriate tools strategically. 6. Attend to precision. 7. Look for and make use of structure. 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
