  Grade 6 is where you’ll learn about algebra, linear equations, 2D and 3D geometry, and the beginnings of statistics. It’s important that you master the maths concepts taught in Grade 6 - they are core concepts that form the basis of many of the advanced maths you’ll study in later grades.

# 1. Variables

Variables keep track of quantities that change such as position, size, and colour. Here’s how a Geometry project (CCMS G.1 and G.3) is taught through variables:

Math learning outcomes

• Area of squares.
• Area of circles.
• Area of triangles.
• Variables.

# 2. Functions

Functions make it easy to bundle related instructions together and to map inputs to outputs. Here’s how a Functions project (CCMS F.A.1 and F.B.5) is taught:

Math learning outcomes

• Inputs and outputs.
• Coordinate geometry.

# 3. Logic

Boolean algebra is the logical foundation for computers, and we use it to make decisions using conditional statements. Here’s how a mixed Number System + Equations project (CCMS NS.7a, NS.7b, and EE.9) is taught through conditional statements:

Math learning outcomes

• Inequalities
• Coordinate geometry.
• Equations.
• Number systems.

# 4. Loops

Loops make it easy to repeat instructions according to set conditions. Here’s how a mixed Geometry + Algebra project (CCMS G.3 and EE.2a) is taught through loops:

Math learning outcomes

• Inequalities
• Coordinate geometry.
• Equations.

# 5. Objects

Many applied maths problems involve bundling data together and presenting it to users, often through text. Here’s how a Functions project (CCMS F.A.1) is taught through dictionaries and strings:

Math learning outcomes

• Inputs and outputs.
• Coordinate geometry.
• Equations.

# 6. Lists

Lists enable us to keep related items in order, from high scores in a game to scientific observations. Here’s how a mixed Number System + Geometry project (CCMS NS.7c, NS.7d, and G.3) is taught through lists:

Math learning outcomes

• Inequalities
• Coordinate geometry.
• Equations.
• Number systems.

# 7. Classes

Classes are the blueprints for objects that bundle data together with the functions that operate on that data. Here’s how a mixed Number System + Equations project (CCMS NS.7a-c, EE.6, and EE.7) is taught through classes:

Math learning outcomes

• Inequalities
• Coordinate geometry.
• Equations.
• Number systems.
