This Unit Guide will give you an opportunity to look closely at the goals, lessons, and learning progression of Grade 6, Unit 1, Area and Surface Area from the OUR 6-8 or IM 6-8 Math Curriculum. This understanding will inform your daily planning and decisions that you will make when teaching this unit to your students.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Articulate how students are invited to the math, build their conceptual understanding and make connections and progress towards procedural fluency.
  • Identify how you will personalize the lessons to your students to increase access to the content without removing the rigor of problem-based structures.


  • 1 hour self-directed course
  • Participants will need a computer with Internet access


I leverage the curriculum’s problem-based structures to plan meaningful learning experiences for my students.
