We guide our instruction using the 2007 Minnesota State Standards. Using these standards, we design our units and create our summative assessments to Meet the Standards. We embed opportunities to Exceed the Standard in our instruction and give opportunities to prove that students can go above and beyond the standard. Those students that Partially Meet the Standard or Does Not Meet the Standard receive additional support that may include individual instruction during our Guided Math time. Students are strongly encouraged to retake any and all parts of our summative assessments that they did not meet the criteria for showing proficiency.

The document below shows all of the 6th grade standards.

**The following standards are going to be our focal points for the year.**We will work with other standards throughout the year also. These are going to be our main focus. Please feel free to learn more about each standard and give your child a jump start by working with the information in each standard.

Trimester 1

MA.6.1 - Determine equivalences among fractions, decimals, and percents; select among these representations to solve problems

MA.6.2 - Multiply and divide decimals using efficient and generalizable procedures, including standard algorithms.

Trimester 2

MA.6.3 - Determine greatest common factors and least common multiples. Use common factors and common multiples to calculate with fractions and find equivalent fractions.

MA.6.4 - Multiply and divide fractions using efficient and generalizable procedures, including standard algorithms

MA.6.5 - Use reasoning about multiplication and division to solve ratio and rate problems

Trimester 3

MA.6.6 - Apply the associative, commutative and distributive properties and order of operations to generate equivalent expressions and to solve problems involving positive rational numbers.

MA.6.7 - Calculate the perimeter, area, surface area and volume of two- and three-dimensional figures to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

MA.6.8 - Determine the sample space (set of possible outcomes) for a given experiment and determine which members of the sample space are related to certain events. Sample space may be determined by the use of tree diagrams, tables or pictoral representations.
