Sixth grade math introduces children to even more difficult equations. Students learn how to solve those equations and graph them on a coordinate plane, calculate the area and circumference of new shapes, and apply what they have learned to new scenarios, such as solving word problems or figuring out distance, rate, and time. Sixth graders can quickly become overwhelmed by all of the confusing concepts, so it’s important to incorporate plenty of real-life examples and fun games or scenarios to keep them focused.
Math Game Time provides plenty of free videos, worksheets, and games designed to prevent sixth graders from becoming overwhelmed with these more difficult concepts. Our educational videos not only break down the concepts and skills, but they also add a bit of humor and real-life examples to help children learn. Below are free math games and worksheets that provide children with fun ways to practice what they’re learning by incorporating logic, strategy, and creative puzzles that require those sixth grade specific skills.
