ICSE Class 6 Mathematics introduces the students to a wide range of mathematical topics. Understanding these topics are very much important to understand the higher-level concepts in class 7. The ICSE 6 Maths syllabus is designed in such a way that the students will get acquainted with all the basic and important topics of Mathematics.

Given below is the ICSE Class 6 Mathematics Syllabus:

### Number System:

**Numbers:**- Word problems on number operations involving large numbers This would include conversions of units of length & mass (from the larger to the smaller units).

**Natural numbers and Whole numbers:**- Natural numbers.
- Whole numbers.
- Properties of numbers (commutative, associative, distributive, additive identity, multiplicative identity).
- Number line.

**Fractions**- Revision of Fractions, proper, improper and mixed fractions by activity only (no sums to be set from this topic)
- Equivalent fractions.
- Comparison of fractions.
- Operations on fractions (Avoid large and complicated unnecessary tasks). (Moving towards abstraction in fractions).
- Addition and Subtraction of like and unlike fractions, day to day application problems using fractions.
- Word problems involving addition and subtraction of decimals (two operations together on money, mass, length and temperature).

**Playing with numbers**- Simplification of brackets.
- Multiples and factors, (Revision of the prime factorisation by tree method and division method to be done in class but no problems to be set for evaluation from these.)
- HCF and LCM, prime factorization and division method for HCF and LCM, the property LCM Ã— HCF = product of two numbers.

### Ratio and Proportion

- Difference between Ratio and Fraction.
- Concept of Ratio.
- Proportion as equality of two ratios.
- Word problems on ratio and proportions. (Only simple daily life problems to be included).
- Idea of percent as fraction with 100 as denominator.
- Idea of speed and simple daily life problems related to speed, time and distance.

### Algebra

- Introduction to constants, variable and unknown through patterns through appropriate word problems and generalisations
- Introduction to algebraic terms like expressions, literal numbers, coefficient, factors, polynomials degree, like and unlike terms.
- Terminology associated with algebra – like literal numbers, terms, expressions, factor, coefficient, polynomials, degree, like and unlike terms.
- Framing algebraic expressions.
- Evaluation of algebraic expressions by substituting a value for the variable. (Operations on algebraic expressions not required).
- Introduction to linear equation in one variable.

### Geometry

**Basic geometrical ideas (2-D)**Introduction to geometry. Its linkage with and reflection in everyday experiences.

- Line, line segment, ray.
- Open and closed figures.
- Interior and exterior closed figure.
- Curvilinear and linear boundaries.
- Angle â€“ Arm, vertex, exterior and interior.
- Triangle â€“ Sides, angles, vertices, interior and exterior, altitude and median
- Quadrilaterals â€“ Vertices, sides, diagonals, angles, diagonals, adjacent sides and opposite sides, interior and exterior of a quadrilateral.
- Circle â€“ Radius, Centre, diameter, sector, arc, segment, chord, circumference, semicircle, exterior and interior.

**Understanding Elementary Shapes (2-D and 3-D)**- Measure of Line Segment,
- Measure of angles.
- Pair of lines â€“ Intersecting and perpendicular lines, Parallel lines.
- Types of Angles â€“ Acute, obtuse, right, straight, complete, reflex and zero angles.
- Classification of triangles on the basis of sides and angles.
- Types of quadrilaterals â€“ Trapezium, parallelogram, rectangle, rhombus, square.
- Identification of 3-D shapes: Cuboids, Cubes, Cylinder, Sphere, Cone, Prism.
- Elements of 3-D figures.

**Constructions (using Straight edge Scale, protractor, compasses )**- Drawing of a line segment.
- Perpendicular bisector
- Construction of angles by using a protractor.
- Angle 60Â°, 120Â° (Using Compasses)
- Construction of circle.

### Mensuration

- Concept of perimeter and introduction to area
- Concept of area, Area of a rectangle and a square
- Conversion of units (Mass, time, money, and capacity) from smaller to larger and vice-versa. (Only relevant conversions e.g., milli, centi, m/l/g, kilo to be included)
- Counter examples to different misconceptions related to perimeter and area (Only discussion in class, no problems or assessments to be done)
- 3 D Figures – Cubes and cuboids
- Introduction of Volume

### Data Handling

- Collection of data to examine a hypothesis
- Collection and organisation of data – examples of organising it in tally bars and a table.
- Construction of bar graphs for given data interpreting bar graphs.
- Mean of data not having more than ten observations
