Course Title: 6th Grade Small Group Math Description of Course Small group math is designed for students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) who have specific goals in the area of math. Each lesson is uniquely designed to meet the individual learner’s needs in math. The course begins with a pre-assessment to determine areas of strength and need in math. Once these assessments have been completed and reviewed, the curriculum is tailored to the specific student. Students will be assessed frequently to determine areas of growth. Students will have access to a variety of different types of math curriculum including computer-based programs, Glencoe Math, functional math and basic math facts in accordance with grade-level math content standards. 6th Grade Math Curriculum: Glencoe Math Course 1 Glencoe Math Course 1 focuses on four critical areas: (1) developing an understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawing, geometric constructions, and surface area, and volume; and (4) drawing inferences about populations. Students will study and understand the following content in Glencoe Math Course 1. All content is directly tied to the Common Core State Standards.
