Practice using operations with integers has a lot of helpful games for practicing 6th grade math skills.

For adding & subtracting integers (which includes whole numbers, their opposites, and zero), try Orbit Integers or Integer Football.

For just subtracting integers, try Ducky Race.

For multiplying integers, try Integer Warp.

Once you get the hang of it, try challenging a friend for fun and practice!

6th Grade Mathematics Syllabus

Course Description

Welcome to Tr. Ben’s 6th Grade Mathematics class! The sixth grade math program is comprehensive and scaffolds prior knowledge with new, more advanced concepts in pursuit of developing critical thinking skills. Topics covered include:


  • Decimals and integers
  • Algebra: equations and inequalities
  • Exponents, factors, and fractions
  • Operations with fractions
  • Ratios, rates, and proportions
  • Percents
  • Geometry
  • Geometry and measurement
  • Algebra: patterns and rules
  • Algebra: graphing in the coordinate plane


Students will work through problems pertaining to real life situations as well as interactive activities. Differentiated instruction is an integral part of the program and is offered to those students who require enrichment or re-teaching. I can be reached at


Text and Resources

Prentice Hall Mathematics (Course 2) textbook, workbook, and enrichment book. Additional practice is available online at Each student is assigned a username and password.



Students will treat their peers and teachers with respect and compassion. I have high expectations of my students and will challenge them to do their best. Truth and hard work are valued highly. Disruptive behavior results in a reduction in the student’s class presence grade.


Students are expected to take notes in class. Students can expect a mix of individual and group work, with the occasional project that aligns with the lesson. Homework will be periodically checked to verify concepts learned in class are being practiced at home. Homework can be found on Google Calendar. Students can expect formative assessments in the form of exit tickets, homework, and mid-chapter quizzes as well as summative assessments as chapter tests. Retakes are permitted on a case-by-case basis and the average of the two scores will be recorded.
