About Mathematics

  • In Mathematics, GCPS students develop their number sense, increase their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, learn how to reason mathematically, and form mathematical connections to the real world.

  • 6th Grade Mathematics

    As students master the 6th Grade Mathematics AKS, they are expected to:

    • Apply and extend previous understanding of numbers to include the system of rational numbers
    • Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems
    • Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities
    • Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables
    • Apply and extend previous understanding of multiplication and division to divide fractions by fractions
    • Summarize and describe distributions
    • Develop understanding of statistical variability
    • Solve real-world problems involving area, surface area, and volume.
  • 7th Grade Mathematics

    As students master the 7th Grade Mathematics AKS, they are expected to:
