The math practice in the summer packet addresses the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework for Mathematics which
incorporates the Common Core Standards
addressing these 4 critical areas in Grade 6:
(1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division,
and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems
(2) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the
notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which
includes negative numbers
(3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations
(4) developing understanding of statistical thinking.
The packet consists of 2 calendar pages, one for July and one for August,
as well as directions for math games to be played at home. Literature, worksheets, apps and websites are also recommended
to explore mathematics in new ways. You are encouraged to complete at least 15 math days each month. Keep track of all your
written math work in a journal, and record your work on the tracking sheets provided in the packet.
The packet is due on the second day of school in September!
