Note: The State of North Carolina has advanced some changes in the math curriculum in the past few months.  The information on this page may change due to the new information presented to math teachers. The only thing that will not change, as far as we know, is that we will be using the Common Core Standards in Math.


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
*Place values
*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

North Carolina Standard Course of Study

In 2010, NC adopted the Common Core Standards.  You can view them here:
