Changes CMP2 to CMP3 Grade 6

Overall Changes

CMP 3 has 7 units in 6th grade. The significant changes in 6th grade are moving Shapes and Designs from grade 6 to 7th grade, moving Variables and Patterns from 7th grade to 6th grade and combing the content of How Likely is It? with What Do You Expect? in 7th 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.

  Shapes and Designs has been moved to Grade 7. How Likely Is It? has been incorporated into Grade 7 unit "What Do You Expect?"

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