CONCEPTS YOU SHOULD ALREADY KNOW
There are several math concepts that should already be well known before you get to sixth grade. If you have trouble with any of the following skills, it would be a good idea to practice them over the summer.
*Multiplication tables (without the use of a calculator)
*Adding & subtracting fractions
*Measuring angles using a protractor
*Using formulas effectively; i.e. area and perimeter of figures
*Solving one-step algebraic equations following the proper steps
*Inequalities, i.e. comprehending less than, greater than, less than or equal to, greater than or equal to
*Long division (without the use of a calculator)
*Decimals: multiplying, dividing, adding, subtracting. (NOTE: Do not align decimals when multiplying!)
*Being fluent in basic mathematical computations WITHOUT the use of a calculator
