6th Grade Math

We are currently working on Unit 3:  2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensional Geometry 

We will explore several kinds of measurement: perimeter, area, and volume.  It is important to study these ideas together and to probe their relationship to each other.  

Specifically, we'll be working on these skills:

  • calculating the area of a variety of quadrilaterals, and justifying the formulas and/or other methods used;
  • estimating the perimeter and area of irregular figures on a grid; and 
  • justifying how to solve mathematical and real-world problems involving the surface area and volume of triangular and rectangular prisms.
