# Common Core: 6th Grade Math Flashcards

Rational numbers (including negative numbers). Using ratio and rate to solve equations. Division of fractions. Statistical thinking. For many parents, most of these math concepts are not what they would expect to see their sixth grader bring home as part of his or her homework. Under the Common Core standards for sixth grade math, that’s exactly what your child will be studying in their math classes.

Throughout the school year, your child will expand on the mathematical concepts they learned in elementary school, like finding area, surface area, and volume of various shapes by deconstructing the shapes and using different formulas to examine the angles and shapes. They’ll also use ratios, learn to divide fractions by fractions, summarize distributions, and begin to work on statistics and probabilities.

If the idea of helping your sixth grade child with these topics makes you immediately want to search for study aids to help them, you’ll like the online flashcards that are part of Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools. There are thousands of online flashcards that you and your child can use to improve their understanding of Common Core 6th Grade math.

Each flashcard describes a single math problem, and provides between two and five options that could be potential answers. After your child chooses an answer, you’ll know immediately whether your child got the right answer or not, and you’ll be able to help them see what they need to do in order to get to the right answer. Depending on the type of question, you’ll see an in-depth answer that explains how to get from the question to the correct answer and the breakdown of all of the required information. Step-by-step, you’ll see how you get from determining what you need to solve for, to the operations that your child needs to use and understand in order to find the correct answer.

Whether your child has just a few minutes between school and afternoon activities, time during study hall, or you’re settling in for a test prep study session to last for a while, these Common Core 6th Grade Math study flashcards are an option that provides flexibility. In addition to the immediate feedback given with these online flashcards, your son or daughter will have the option to return to flashcards and questions they’ve already dealt with; they can also skip around in the different flashcards, jumping from topic to topic, if they choose.

After you’ve explored the flashcards offered by Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools, you may want to take a look at the other Learning Tools. Full-Length Practice Tests make it easy to see where your child might need a bit of extra help, while the topic-focused Practice Tests allow you to work with your son or daughter on any challenging concepts. There’s also an interactive syllabus, called Learn by Concept, and a Question of the Day series that presents a single question focusing on a random topic in the Common Core 6th Grade Math subject area.
