August 22nd, I start one year of school, I am trying to read as many books on math as possible before school starts and i'm clue-less! If you can write some basic info. need for 6th grade, please feel free to comment below. I need help with just math though, I have an average range on my Fcat score-sheet for reading and science, I want to bump up my math score this year so I will have a better education. Thank you, so much if you comment to help me with math, Kiana (lovepeacea)

The best preparation for sixth grade math is to make sure you know all of your multiplication and division facts, as well as addition and subtraction.  It may seem simple, but you don't want to waste time trying to remember or get things from for simple reasons.  Also review fractions and decimals.  You'll need them.

For 6th grade, you don't have to read up on anything new.  a lot of the standards in 6th grade are just getting you better at things you already know or have already seen.  Some of the skills you'll see and will need to know are Greatest Common Factor, Least Common Multiple, Basic Operations with Fractions, Basic Operations with Decimals, Mental Math leading into Variable Solving with One Step and Two Step, etc.  I would say just bone up on your multiplication table and go over what you studied lastyear.  You'll be fine.
