Nelson Math Grade 6 Workbook explains and tests various problem solving and investigation techniques that children are expected to learn at grade 6 level. The content of this workbook is closely aligned to the grade 6 curriculum. Therefore, children who use this workbook are likely to perform better in class. The topics and practice exercises in Nelson Math 6 are kept parallel to what those children are being taught in the classroom. Students struggling with any strand of math can use this workbook as it reinforces math comprehension in a way that is simple and easy to understand. This book can be used to work on specific topics as well as for practicing and understanding overall math topics for grade 6.
This workbook is based on Nelson’s understanding of the most effective teaching and learning methodologies. It tests your child’s proficiency in each strand of mathematic at the end of the topic a practice exercise. It allows parents to work with their children and identify the areas that might need extra attention. As each practice question supports a goal mentioned at the beginning of the topic that helps parents to keep track of their child’s progress. Parents can also refer to the “At Home Help” section of the book which summarizes math concepts for each set of questions to support their child if he or she is having any trouble completing the questions.
Grade 6 math is focused on cultivating various important mathematical concepts in students at a level of complexity outlined below:
Problem Solving: demonstrate in-depth understanding of the mathematical concepts they apply in conducting investigation and solving problems
Reasoning and Proving: use reasoning skills to argue and prove the rationale behind the investigation and problem solving techniques they use in answering a question
Selecting Tools and Computational Strategies: learn and demonstrate the use various computational tools and techniques required to solve math problems
Reflecting: compare and adjust strategies used in solving problems and reflect their understanding as they complete an investigation
Connecting: build connections between mathematical concepts and procedures, and learn their application in everyday life
Representing: learn to create graphical representation of math ideas and solve math problems using pictures, graphs, numbers, diagrams and variables
Communicating: communicate understanding of math concepts and problem solving techniques articulately and using the correct terminologies
Grade 6 math workbook gives great insight into all the above-mentioned topics.
