6th EPP Curriculum Overview
We will work on Ohio Learning Standards and the 8 Mathematical practices using the program College Preparatory Mathematics. We will continue to work on enrichment activities to deepen our appreciation and passion for mathematics.
CPM Core Connections Course 2 is divided into 9 chapters. Each chapter is divided into sections. The curriculum is designed to spiral and students will work on many math skills in each chapter. Students will complete investigations and challenging problems to better understand mathematical concepts.
Homework Expectations
Daily assignments will be posted in Schoology for our “At Home” school days. Students can click on their math course or calendar to see new assignments.
During the hybrid model, students will be assigned homework packets on Wednesday/Thursday and it will be due the following Wednesday/Thursday.
Current Math Topics
We have started our ratio unit. Through this unit, we will determine proportional relationships with tables, graphs, and equations. We will use unit rates to solve proportional word problems. We investigated real life examples of scale factor with scale models, maps, and diagrams.
Later in Chapter 4, students will develop a better understanding of “why” and “how” we can simplify and solve algebraic equations using the distributive and associative properties. We will focus on constructing mathematical arguments and justifying our solutions to algebraic equations with words and models, including algebra tiles.
In Chapter 5, we will strengthen our understanding of probability and compound events and use the 5 D process to solve complex word problems and use a variable to define unknown terms. The 5D process includes: Describe/Draw, Do, Decide, Declare.

Ohio Learning Standards:
Below are some standards we will work on during Trimester 2.
Critical Area 1: Developing understanding of and applying proportional relationshipsStudents extend their understanding of ratios and develop understanding of proportionality to solve single and multistep problems. Students use their understanding of ratios and proportionality to solve a wide variety of percent problems, including those involving discounts, interest, taxes, tips, and percent increase or decrease. Students solve problems about scale drawings by relating corresponding lengths between the objects or by using the fact that relationships of lengths within an object are preserved in similar objects. Students graph proportional relationships and understand the unit rate informally as a measure of the steepness of the related line, called the slope. They distinguish proportional relationships from other relationships.
Critical Area 5: Investigating chance Students build upon previous understandings as they develop concepts of probability. They investigate relevant chance events and develop models to determine and compare probabilities. They analyze the frequencies of the experimental results against their predictions, justifying any discrepancies. Students extend their investigations with compound events representing the possible outcomes in tree diagrams, tables, lists, and ultimately through designing and using simulations.
