Sixth Grade Mathematics Curriculum Overview

  • The Knox County Schools Mathematics program implements a comprehensive, research-based approach to learning mathematics.  Our curriculum is carefully aligned with the Tennessee State Standards for Mathematics.


    In grade six, your child will learn the concept of rates and ratios and use these tools to solve word problems.  Students will work on quickly and accurately dividing multi-digit whole numbers and adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing multi-digit decimals.  Students will extend their previous work with fractions and decimals to understand the concept of rational numbers.  Students will also learn how to write and solve equations and apply these skills in solving multi-step word problems. 

    Module topics will include:
    • Computational fluency with decimals and fractions
    • Ratio, rates, and percent
    • Extending the number system and the coordinate plane
    • Algebraic expressions
    • Equations and inequalities
