## Common Core State Standards

Common Core State Standards for education are challenging standards that are being developed and adopted throughout most of the nation. These standards define the knowledge and skills students should have to succeed in college and in the workforce.

Click here for the Common Core State Standards for sixth grade math. They are complicated! The Mathematical Practice Standards (described further here) are about ways we want all students to learn to approach mathematics, solve problems, and analyze and communicate their results. The Mathematical Content Standards for sixth grade focus on ratio and rate; the number system, including negative numbers, rational numbers, and division of fractions; writing, interpreting, and using algebraic expressions and equations; developing understanding of statistical thinking; and area, surface area, and volume of two- and three-dimensional shapes.
