The MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH ACCELERATION PROGRAM (MSMAP) at the BARUN ACADEMIC CENTER is designed to prepare the 6th grade student for the appropriate advanced math class. |
APPLIED MATH FOR THE 6TH GRADE (MSMAP) is designed for the 6th grade student for Common Core Math 7/8 placement in the 7th grade. This group class is aligned with the California's COMMON CORE State Standards: |
Ratios and Proportional Relationships: Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems (by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations). | |
The Number System: Fluently add, subtract, and divide multi-digit numbers and decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation. Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers. Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. | |
Expressions and Equations: Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities. Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables. | |
Geometry: Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume. | |
Statistics and Probability: Develop understanding of statistical variability. Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots. |
Students will be required to attend twice a week (one lesson to emphasize problem solving and word problems and the other to reinforce accuracy). Students are expected to complete additional exercise problem sets for homework. Students can expect homework, quizzes, a mid-term and a final. Grades will be given. |
All sixth graders will be taking the Middle School Math Acceleration Test in the Spring. |

The MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH ACCELERATION PROGRAM (MSMAP) at the BARUN ACADEMIC CENTER is designed to prepare the 6th grade student for the appropriate advanced math class. |
MATH 7/8 (MSMAP) is designed for the select 6th grade student for Enhanced MATH 1 placement in the 7th grade. This group class is aligned with the California's COMMON CORE State Standards: |
Expressions and Equations: Solve real-world and mathematical problems of two linear equations in two variables algebraically, and estimate solutions by graphing the equations. | |
Functions: Interpret the equation y=mx+b as defining a linear function. Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. | |
Geometry: Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions. Apply the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems. | |
Statistics and Probability: Construct and interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data to investigate patterns of association between two quantities. |
Students will be required to attend twice a week (one lesson to emphasize problem solving and word problems and the other to reinforce accuracy). Students are expected to complete additional exercise problem sets for homework. CAASPP test preparation will be integrated in the weekly lectures. Students can expect homework, quizzes, a mid-term and a final. Grades will be given. |
All sixth graders must first pass the Middle School Math Acceleration Test to take the Enhanced Math 1 Acceleration Test in the Spring. |
