Math 6 Part 1 will provide a solid foundation in mathematics by covering topics such as decimals, fractions, expressions, equations, graphing, measurement, and statistics. This course will introduce students to ratios, percentages, and geometry, and will also teach students how to collect and interpret data and display their findings through graphs. Students will learn to recognize patterns and to work with variables. Prime numbers, factoring, and divisibility rules will be covered as well, and students will add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions.
It is recommended that students possess a solid understanding of the concepts covered in Math 5 or equivalent course work before enrolling in this course.
