If you are a standard six’s parent curious about your child’s mathematical abilities, this article is for you! Read on for help in understanding the math skills your child should have acquired by the end of standard six.
A standard six student should be able to recognize numbers up to 100,000, be able to place them in order and compare them to other numbers. By the time your child completes standard six, they should be able to count by 3’s, 4’s, 5’s, 6’s, 7’s, 8’s, 9’s, 10’s, 11’s and 12’s up to 144. The student should have a firm grasp of multiplication and division with all the numbers up 12 and should be able to add, subtract, multiply and divide with decimals and fractions.
Basic algebra skills await your child In standard six. They’ll learn about the order of operations in a math problem, how to complete math problems with multiple operations, and how to find a missing value in an equation involving multiple operations.
Standard six students receive their first basic geometry problems and by the end of the school year they should be able to identify and categorize triangles by their properties and measure and construct triangles and angles with a protractor. They will also learn about planes, tessellations, and grid coordinate systems.
Many Standard Six students are able to earn a passing grade in their math classes without fully understanding the concepts they have been taught. It’s critical for parents to monitor their child’s progress. Some students can slip by without showing major signs of confusion. This means that even if your child does not ask for help with their fifth grade math they could still have skill gaps. These skill gaps will interfere with success in secondary math.
