Numbers and Operations

Essential Question

What does numerical reasoning involve and what does it demonstrate about God’s world?


Big Idea

Numerical reasoning with whole numbers and fractions demonstrates dependability and order in God’s world.


Rational Numbers





Add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit whole numbers and decimals. (6.NS.2,3)

Find common factors and multiples (6.NS.4); understand and apply prime factorization and exponents. (6.EE.1)

Understand, compare, and order integers; apply integer principles within the four basic operations; graph ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. (6.NS.5,6,7,8)

Divide fractions by fractions; express a remainder as a fraction or decimal; convert within fractions, decimals, and percents; convert fractions to terminating, repeating, or rounded decimals. (6.NS.1)

Ratios/ Proportions/ Percentages


Understand and apply ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems. (6.RP.1,2,3)

Operations and Algebraic Thinking

Essential Question

How do numerical patterns link us to an infinite God?


Big Idea

Exploring numerical patterns through problem solving links us to an infinite God by demonstrating His order and constancy.


Expressions and Equations



Apply basic operations to algebraic expressions; solve and explain one-variable equations and inequalities; identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms. (6.EE.1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8)

Represent, graph, and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables. (6.EE.9)


Essential Question

What do the attributes of measurement reveal about God?


Big Idea

The attributes of measurement reveal God’s accuracy, dependability, and precision.

Elapsed Time


Calculate elapsed time.


Essential Question

What does geometry reveal about God?

Big Idea

God is revealed as the Master Designer when geometry is used as a means of describing the attributes of the physical world.



Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume. (6.G.1,2,3,4)

Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability

Essential Question

How can we quantify our findings in a way that pleases God?

Big Idea

God has at various times commanded men to count, measure, and record their findings.


Statistics and Probability



Develop understanding of statistical variability. (6.SP.1,2,3)

Summarize and describe distributions. (6.SP.4,5)
