In Math 6, instructional time should focus on five areas:
(1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems;
(2) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers;
(3)writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations;
(4) deepening understanding of area, surface area and volume; and
(5) developing understanding of simple probabilities and statistical thinking.
