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. 

    Unit topics will include:
    • Area and Surface Area
    • Introducing Ratios
    • Unit Rates and Percentages
    • Dividing Fractions
    • Arithmetic in Base Ten
