• Our 6th grade math program is called College Preparatory Math (CPM).  This curriculum focuses on Common Core State Standards and meets the California guidelines established for all students.
    Students do not have a traditional textbook or consumable (tear out pages) workbook.  Instead, they have packets for each chapter that they work through with collaborative groups, direct instruction, and individual practice.  
    To be successful in mathematics, students need to develop the ability to reason mathematically. To do so, students need to think about what they already know and then connect this knowledge to the new ideas they are learning. Many students are not used to the idea that what they learned yesterday or last week will be connected to today’s lesson. Too often students do not have to do much thinking in school because they are usually just told what to do. When students understand that connecting prior learning to new ideas is a normal part of their education, they will be more successful in this mathematics course (and any other course, for that matter).
