Grade 6 Math


Grade 6 is a benchmark year for every child. Almost on the threshold of junior school, Grade 6 is the bridge between the foundations of elementary school and new concepts of junior school. This bridge makes it imperative for every Grade 6 students’ mathematics to be concrete and clear. Entering the world of ratios with the understanding of dimensions and basic fractions and decimals from Grade 5, Grade 6 elaborates on the applications of the basic concepts including the metric system, probability, fractions while introducing new facets of probability and graphs.

Whole numbers

In mathematics whole numbers are positive integers or nonnegative integers if you include zero. There is no fraction or decimal parts in whole numbers they also cannot be negative. Whole numbers are important because they are basic counting numbers.

Word names for numbers

Roman numerals


A number that has a decimal point followed by digits that show a value smaller than one. Understanding decimal numbers is important to our daily lives as it relates to money, fractional amounts or metric measures.

Problem solving and estimation

A question that needs a solution. In mathematics some problems use words, so you need to learn how to interpret them into mathematical expressions and find the appropriate answer to the question. Problem solving is important skill in life which helps you to tackles the problem in life and find the best solution for them. Sometimes when we try to find an answer to our question, we cannot find the exact answer, so we estimate it. Estimation is the process of finding a value that is close enough to the right answer.

Ratios and rates

A ratio shows the relative sizes of two or more values, in other words a Ratio compares values. A ratio says how much of one thing there is compared to another thing. For example, if there is 1 boy and 3 girls, we can write the ratio like 1:3 (for every 1 boy there are 3 girls.)

“Percent” comes from the Latin Per Centum. The Latin word Centum means 100. When we say Percent, we mean per 100, so 1 percent means 1 per 100. We use the symbol % to show the percent. For example, 50% means 50 per 100. Understanding percentages is important for math skills and real life, for example stores advertise discounts on their products by using percents, like 30% off on math books.

An equation says that two things are equal, it will have an equal sign “=”. A variable is a symbol for a number we do not know yet. A single variable equation (one-variable equation) is an equation in which there is only one variable used. Note that the variable can be used multiple times or used on either side of the equation; all that matters is that the variable remains the same.
