Enroll in Grade 6 Mathematics with Dolphin STEM Academy

Course Overview

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. Through
this course, you will explore area, volume, and surface area of polygons in
mathematical and real-world contexts. This course also explores concepts related to
probability and statistics.

Course Goals

By the end of this course, 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.
Explore three-dimensional figures using nets and find their surface area.
Recognize questions that can be answered using statistics.
Display numerical data on a number line in different types of plots.
Describe different methods of determining the center of a set of numbers.

General Skills

To participate in this course, you should be able to do the following:
Complete basic operations with word-processing software, such as Microsoft Word or Google Docs.
Perform online research using various search engines and library databases.

Course Pacing Guide

This course description and pacing guide is intended to help you stay on schedule with
your work. Note that your course instructor may modify the schedule to meet the
specific needs of your class.

Unit 1: Expressions and Equations

Summary

In this unit, you will use your previous knowledge of rational numbers to form algebraic
equations and solve one-variable equations and inequalities. You will also analyze the
relationship between independent and dependent variables.

Unit 2: Geometry

Summary

In this unit, you will find area, volume, and surface area of polygons in mathematical
and real-world contexts.

Unit 3: Statistics and Probability

Summary

In this unit, you will study concepts related to statistics. You will describe statistical and
nonstatistical situations and find the measures of center and measures of variation for
statistical data. You will also explore the different types of plots to display numerical
data. And you will work through a course activity in which you will gather, present, and
record statistical data.
