Pre-AP sixth grade math provides eligible students with a course designed to prepare them for Pre-AP Algebra One in eighth grade and other rigorous advanced course work in the future. In addition to the concepts of number and operations; proportionality; expressions, equations and relationships; and measurement and data, the curriculum will include many of the seventh grade concepts as well as rigorous problem solving. Students should expect an additional time requirement and be willing to work independently. Typically, successful Pre-AP middle school math students obtain a RIT score on the MAP Assessment in math at or above the national norm of students at least one grade level above, have performed at an advanced level on STAAR, are able to problem solve and think critically and can simultaneously manage
6th Grade Academic encompasses all 6th grade Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Within a well-balanced mathematics curriculum, the primary focal points at Grade 6 are using ratios to describe direct proportional relationships involving numbers, geometry, measurement, probability, and adding and subtracting decimals and fractions. Along the way, students will learn more about problem solving, how to use the tools and language of mathematics, and how to think mathematically.
