Jemtegaard Middle School 6th Grade Connected Math Program Syllabus for 2009 – 2010 The Connected Math Project (CMP), the current 6th grade math curriculum at Jemtegaard Middle School, is built around mathematical problems that help students develop an understanding of important concepts and skills in number sense, geometry, measurement, algebra, probability, and statistics. These skills will be critical for students to be successful when taking the Measure of Student Progress (the new name for state mandated test). Listed are the books and performance expectations for this year: Performance # CMP Publication 1 or 2 Expectations Module/Book Multiplication and Division of Fractions & Decimals Compare and order non-negative 6.1.A • Bits and Pieces I fractions, decimals, and integers using the number line, lists, and the symbols <, >, or =.
