THE KEY Study Guide for Mathematics 6 is specifically designed to assist students to prepare for quizzes, unit tests, and final exams throughout the year. It is 100% aligned with the Alberta curriculum and covers the following topics:
Patterns and Relations
Shape and Space
Statistics and Probability
Each unit includes essential teaching pieces, practice questions, unit tests, answers, and detailed solutions. Challenger Questions provide students difficult questions that test their depth of knowledge. The complete solutions show problem-solving methods, explain key concepts and highlight potential errors. The resource is ideal for yearlong use by students, teachers, and parents at home or at school.
A Table of Correlations at the beginning of each unit identifies the curriculum outcomes for the unit as well as the multiple-choice and numerical-response questions that specifically test those concepts. To help students understand the curriculum, THE KEY provides explanations for key concepts at the beginning of each unit and practice questions.
One complete practice Provincial Achievement Test is included in THE KEY. The practice PAT now includes both Part A (no calculator questions) and Part B. Students may use it to become familiar with provincial exam format and rigor. Detailed solutions are provided for all questions. Solutions show the processes and ideas used in arriving at the correct answers and may help students gain a better understanding of the concepts being tested.
