Top Sixth Grade Math IEP Goals

Our primary focus IEP goals for sixth grade math are to enable the student to divide whole numbers with 3-digit divisors. The student will also be able to divide whole numbers with 2-digit divisors and add, subtract, multiply, and divide two decimals.
 

Additionally, the student will learn how to multiply and divide decimals by powers of ten. These goals will be accomplished through a combination of instruction in general education math classes and special education math classes. The student's progress toward these goals will be regularly monitored, and adjustments will be made based on the assessment data results.

  1. Divide whole numbers - 3-digit divisors

  2. Divide whole numbers - 2-digit divisors

  3. Add, subtract, multiply, or divide two decimals

  4. Multiply and divide decimals by powers of ten

From a special education perspective, it is essential for 6th graders to be able to understand and solve math problems related to their IEP goals. As this is the first year in middle school for most students it's vital that they reach their goals. These goals may include converting percentages, finding common multiples, graphing points on a coordinate grid, or working with negative numbers. It is our job as educators to help 6th graders fluently solve these types of problems, it is important to provide them with ample opportunities to practice. This may involve having them work through practice worksheets, solving word problems, or using manipulative objects to model mathematical concepts. With continued practice, 6th graders will develop the confidence and skills necessary to meet their IEP goals and scaffold them for 7th grade success.
