Tabtor Publishes Sixth-Grade Math Resource for Parents

Innovator of Math Tutoring App Launches Guide to Sixth-Grade-Specific Math Skills

KENDALL PARK, NJ--(Marketwired - October 23, 2014) - Tabtor, a leader in iPad- and tablet-based personalized learning, today announced it is publishing a resource to help prepare families for the math concepts being introduced with the Common Core State Standards. The e-book, A Parents' Guide to 6th Grade Math + Practice Worksheets, is available for free download at www.tabtor.com/6th-grade-guide

The Common Core State Standards, or CCSS, aim to establish consistent nationwide guidelines in what concepts are being taught in English and math from kindergarten through 12th grade. Adopted by 43 states and the District of Columbia, Common Core sets forth these new criteria, and states and school districts are then tasked with developing curricula that follow the standards. CCSS has been met with some confusion by parents on what their sixth-graders will be taught and how these guidelines differ from the previous standards. This e-book helps families by:

  • Providing a better understanding of Common Core
  • Describing four critical areas of focus -- ratio, division of fraction and negative numbers, expressions and equations, and statistical thinking -- that sixth-graders will concentrate on during the school year
  • Detailing five key topics that will be taught to sixth-graders
  • Examining eight Common Core math practices geared toward helping students excel at the skills addressed in these standards
  • Granting access to free worksheets that will give sixth-graders an opportunity to practice these skills

"The more you understand about the Common Core State Standards, the better you'll be able to help your child learn the required skills," says Raj Valli, Founder and CEO of Tabtor. "Parents should not just rely on the teachers to ensure their child's education, but also be informed and participate in the child's growth. This e-book and its worksheets will help you stay in the know about CCSS requirements and test your child's understanding of sixth-grade math within the new standards to ensure they are set on the right path with math proficiency."
