• Grade  6 uses the Everyday Mathematics which is published by Wright Group/McGraw-Hill.  It is the result of a rich collaboration between the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project author team, distinguished mathematicians, education specialists, teachers-in-residence, and hundreds of classroom teachers.

     

    Everyday Mathematics emphasizes the application of mathematics to real world situations. Numbers, skills and mathematical concepts are not presented in isolation, but are linked to situations and contexts that are relevant to everyday lives. The curriculum also provides numerous suggestions for incorporating mathematics into daily classroom routines and other subject areas.  Each Everyday Mathematics lesson includes time for whole-group instruction as well as small group, partner, or individual activities.  Throughout the Everyday Mathematics curriculum students are encouraged to explain and discuss their mathematical thinking, in their own words. Opportunities to verbalize their thoughts and strategies give children the chance to clarify their thinking and gain insights from others.
