The objective of teaching Mathematics is to develop the skills of problem-solving and logical reasoning within learners. The curriculum is structured in a manner that each student is thoroughly clear of all the concepts by the end of the grade. The aim of Grade 6 is to provide learners with the introduction to complex concepts since they are proficient with the basic concepts learnt in primary grades.
- The learner represents numbers up to seven-digits with ease.
- The learner develops an understanding of rational numbers and ratios.
- The learner effectively analyzes complex shapes and patterns.
- The learner begins to understand basic concepts of algebra.
- The learner converts fractions into percentages.
- The learner begins to understand the relationship between the height, the area of the base, and the volume of major 3-D figures , and attempts to develop the formula.
- The learner measures and construct angles up to 180° using a protractor, and can also classify them as acute, right, obtuse, or straight angles.
- The learner builds relationships with comparable objects through observing the objects in depth.
- The learner gives intricate directions to objects and understands the reading of a compass.
- The learner recognizes quadrangles, pentagons, hexagons etc along with their major features.
- The learner identifies and replicates 3-D figures with respect to their attributes such as angle, size and location.
- The learner demonstrates an understanding of different ways in which variables are used.
- The learner begins to describe pattern rules (in words) that generate patterns by adding or subtracting a constant, or multiplying or dividing by a constant.
- The learner determines the solution to a simple equation with one variable.
- The learner begins to make tables of values for growing pattern.
- The learner applies mental strategies to solve addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems.
- The learner develops the understanding of arithmetic operations on decimal numbers.
- The learner organizes discrete data consisting of relatively complex digits and sequence.
- The learner develops the skill of selecting the appropriate type of standardized unit to measure various 2-D figures and 3-D figures.
- The learner predicts growth and drop for basic numeric and geometric patterns.
- The learner performs on DMAS (Division, Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction) problems on fractions and decimals.
- The learner develops the skill of answering to mathematical questions within capacities.
- The learner extends and create repeating patterns and shapes with proficiency.
- The learner solves problems requiring conversion of larger metric units to smaller units.
- The learner explores various kinds of 2-D and 3-D shapes.
- The learner develops a habit for solving problems logically.
- The learner motivates peers to solve arithmetic problems within capacities.
- The learner begins to work with others to promote qualities such as team-work.
- The learner develops the habit of respecting others.
- The learner realizes the importance of sharing through word problems based on division.
