Mathematics in the Elementary School: Outline for the Last Three Grades

by David Eugene Smith & F. M. McMurry - 1903

IV. OUTLINE FOR THE LAST THREE GRADES Grade VI In this grade the reduction of common fractions to decimals, and vice versa, is the only topic in pure arithmetic demanding attention; except as the others enter into reviews. The year is given to applications, chiefly in percentage and denominate numbers. At the beginning of the year the work of Grade V should be reviewed as suggested in the notes for that grade. On the subject of reviews in general, and the use of the text-book, consult the general suggestions of the preceding grades. It is particularly desirable to carry out the general policies as laid down in 'the notes on the work of all preceding grades, and hence teachers and those carrying on professional observation work should become familiar with those notes. The following are some of the topics especially suitable for the sixth school grade: 1. Gardening; 2. Farming; 3. Rainfall, variations in different places and from year to year; 4. Mining; 5. Lumbering; 6. Fishing; 7. Ranching; 8. Transportation; 9. Manufacture and trade, introducing the metric system as connected with our rapidly growing foreign market.
