Grade 6 IFT HIFZ Math
Elementary Hifz IFT Math Class ( For HIFZ Students Only)
Jan 7, 2024 to Mar 3, 2024
10:30 AM - 11:15 AM EST
Teacher: Nadia Akhtar
This course is designed for students at IFT full time hifz program. Our Grade 6 book will cover the following topics.
We will not be able to complete all these topics by the beginning of March but this is an idea of what topics are covered in the first half of our grade 6 math curriculum.
In sixth grade, students encounter the beginnings of algebra, learning about algebraic expressions, one-variable equations and inequalities, integers, and ratios. We also review and deepen the students' understanding of rational numbers: both fractions and decimals are studied in depth, while percent is a new topic for 6th grade.
In geometry, students learn to compute the area of various polygons, and also calculate volume and surface area of various solids. The last major area of study is statistics, where students learn to summarize and describe distributions using both measures of center and variability.
The year starts out with a review of the four operations with whole numbers (including long division), place value, and rounding. Students are also introduced to exponents and do some problem solving.
Chapter 2 starts the study of algebra topics, delving first into expressions and equations. Students practice writing expressions in many different ways, and use properties of operations and the idea of maintaining the equality of both sides of an equation to solve simple one-step equations. We also study briefly inequalities and using two variables.
Chapter 3 has to do with decimals. This is a long chapter, as we review all of decimal arithmetic, just using more decimal digits than in 5th grade. Students also convert measuring units in this chapter.
Ratios (chapter 4) is a new topic for sixth grade. Students are already familiar with finding fractional parts from earlier grades, and now it is time to advance that knowledge into the study of ratios, which arise naturally from dividing a quantity into many equal parts. We study such topics as rates, unit rates, equivalent ratios, and problem solving using bar models.
Percent (chapter 5) is an important topic to understand thoroughly, because of its many applications in real life. The goal of this chapter is to develop a basic understanding of percent, to see percentages as decimals, and to learn to calculate discounts.
The cost above includes the cost of the 9 weeks of instruction plus the cost of the textbook that is being used in class, Math Mammoth grade 6A.
Every Prep4Nine class we have taken has been superb and this semester was no exception! Both my kids were in Math and Urdu classes this semester and we are so happy with the level of instruction, interactivity, and overall professionalism that both Nadia A and Nadia K bring to the classes. The level of care that these instructors put into their courses is evident from the first day and their enthusiasm for their students and the subject matter is clear. These courses are an asset to not just the homeschooling community, but school-going students as well! My son is in high school and is benefitting immensely from the grade 10 Math course to reinforce concepts and skills. I'm thankful that there are after school classes like evening Urdu - my daughter has gone from a very basic Urdu vocabulary and understanding to using such advanced phrases and vocabulary! It's truly a blessing. Thank you Nadia & Nadia!
