# Changes CMP2 to CMP3 Grade 6

### Overall Changes

CMP 3 has 7 units in 6^{th} grade. The significant changes in 6^{th} grade are moving *Shapes and Designs* from grade 6 to 7^{th} grade, moving *Variables and Patterns* from 7^{th} grade to 6^{th} grade and combing the content of *How Likely is It?* with *What Do You Expect?* in 7^{th} grade. The Shapes and Design unit is about two-dimensional geometry and is recommended to be the first unit in grade 7. It is providing a foundation for coming units specifically *Stretching and Shrinking* and *Filling and Wrapping*. In this unit there is also more focus on mathematical expressions.

Table 1 provides order of CMP 3 units compared to CMP2 units.
