Hi Charlie Auen! Thank you so much for this update! I've been waiting all month for this updated 6th grade course, and I'm thrilled at the new changes! Shorter, spiraling units are a welcome update, and remind me of this secret course.

Khan Academy's 6th grade Math is now in its best form ever, and I don't have more feedback to share than endless praise for how exciting it is. However, your ability to show the joy in Math is unparalleled, and I was wondering if an excerpt of this post can either be published on the blog, or as blurb at the top of the course. By blurb I mean the same one where you'd announced this change a few days ago.

But this cool new course also raises some questions: Does Get Ready for 6th Grade also need relevant content updates, given 6th grade has an updated unit structure? Can the ratios and % and negative numbers units in Pre-Algebra also get these new exercises and videos? Unit structure in Pre-Alg is fine, but I'd love for this new content to be included there too—and in India 6th-8th Math where relevant, since ratios are a core topic in SO MANY job recruitment exams in India!

Also, can KA just announce this updated 6th grade course on YouTube and socials: a quick video like the Middle School Sciences one will bring more users to this course. Math and Science are KA's most extensive content area, and I'm happy to see the courses stay well-oiled and up-to-date.

G. Tarun We added the new content to several related curations, including Pre-algebra. I'm glad that you're enjoying the changes.

Charlie Auen Thanks for updating so many Math courses! Just saw the post on the update to several courses, and the only feedback I have is to preserve the arithmetic content deleted from grade-level in Arithmetic course or Arithmetic home. BTW I love the rename of Early Math to Early Math Review. But do Arithmetic, Kindergarten, Pre-Algebra also need that "review" modifier?

Charlie Auen If KA's making more Math updates, here's one that requires 100% curation (including the new 6th grade ratios material), and 0% new creation of content. GRE Prep has been much-requested on this forum, but before launching Official GRE Prep in partnership with ETS, it's much easier to make a course out of this.

GRE site already recommends KA for the Quantitative Reasoning math skills, so what if you'd launched a dedicated regular Math course called "GRE Quantitative Reasoning Review"? It's not Test Prep like SAT or LSAT, but regular Math mastery-based course like grade-level courses.

To be sure, all the GRE-relevant Math content is on KA already, but spread across various courses. Using the GRE article as a checklist isn't as convenient as having a course built out of the content items listed there. Then, GRE-takers can just master the course up to 90% or more, at their own time and pace—familiar KA philosophy applied to GRE prep too!

Can Precalculus be updated and renamed to AP/College Precalculus? Or can it be duplicated, and updated to AP needs while there's a non-AP Precalculus too? College Board's launching an AP Precalc exam next year, and either updating the existing course or duplicating it for AP classrooms will be a game-changer. To me, though, AP and KA precalc are near-identical, so maybe only a rename of the course is necessary?

Charlie Auen Can this article be reposted on the Khan Academy blog? Science courses have a blog post, and the 6th grade Math could get one too! I love the context about units and classroom features. Students and teachers may want to check out the blog post, and it seems like a good place to host it rather than just on the support community.
