Math Fundamentals 6

Course Catalog ID:
Subject Categories:
Elementary Class, Math

The course’s primary aim is to develop number-sense skills, problem-solving techniques, and the ability to recognize and describe numerical and geometric patterns and relationships. The course lays a strong foundation for Pre-Algebra, and starts students in the challenging transition from concrete arithmetic math to more abstract algebraic math. Teacher-led discussion and group work facilitate student discovery to stimulate and facilitate independent learning. Topics include: review the four operations with whole numbers (including long division); place value; rounding; decimal arithmetic; fraction operations with focus on fraction division; prime factorization; greatest common factor; least common multiple; algebraic expressions, equations, and inequalities; integers (addition and subtraction with negative numbers); graphing on the coordinate plane; area of polygons; surface area of solids using nets; volume of rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths; statistical distribution using both measures of center and variability; and more.

“I would recommend this course to others because the amount of what we are learning is amazing. I never knew I could learn so much and on top of that, I am actually understanding what I’m learning!”

“I took Math Fundamentals 6 this year. It was AWESOME! I would TOTALLY take it again.”

James B

“Math Fundamentals 6 is filled with excellent, conceptual math instruction. The instructor goes to great lengths to ensure each student understands, so that no one is left behind. In addition, weekly homework reinforces these concepts. The MF6 teacher also puts together a list of games, videos and internet tools each week that further solidify the methods learned in the classroom.”

“My favorite class was Math Fundamentals 6. It was always fun, but at the same time I also felt like I was learning so much! I had never liked math until I took it at TPS. TPS helped me understand and enjoy doing my math homework!!”
