6th Grade Math A

Why This Class

Math is a unique language—and helping your student learn that language while also connecting it to what they already know can be a challenge. This course tackles that challenge by linking math to scenarios and stories your student knows and loves.

In the Middle School math program, we work with students to solidify foundational skills that will serve them in high school, college and most importantly—in real life. Math is taught in context, so it is relevant and meaningful. We challenge students to move beyond the common idea that only certain types of people can do math by giving them strategies to approach skill-based learning experiences.

By the end of this course, students are increasingly conscious of how math impacts their everyday lives. They are excited to use their newfound math skills to continue their learning journey in future math courses.
