Grade 6 Math

A Message From Ms. Newman

 

Hello Students & Families,

First and foremost, I miss each and every one of you and our classroom community.  I hope you and your families are staying safe, healthy, and happy during this time.  I am here for you during this time and if you need anything please email me @ newmankn@pwcs.edu

This week I have worked on several links you can visit for review as well as some review activities.  I have included a snapshot of the learning we have done this school year as well as what is coming next.

In our math class, the curriculum is guided by problem solving and representing ideas mathematically.  Please see a copy of our specific learning targets on this website.We have completed our Number Sense, Computation & Estimation, and Algebra units.  Prior to the release from school, we began our Measurement unit.  We will finish out the year with Measurement & Geometry, and Statistics.  When the time comes to begin new topics, we will continue to focus on these targets and provide online opportunities for students.   

PWCS is directing that there will not be any new assignments or graded work at this time.  The best way for students to review and practice our math targets is to follow some of the useful links and activities posted on this webpage under Additional Resources during COVID-19.  Please continue to practice those math skills on IXL. 

I am thinking of you all everyday!  Please stay healthy and happy while we are away from each other. 

Sincerely,

Ms. Newman

The sixth grade math curriculum encompasses seven major units of study.   Students will gain an understanding of Ratios & Proportions; Fractions, Decimals, & Percents; Integers & Order of Operations; Equations & Inequalities; Problem Solving; Geometry & Measurement, and Statistics. 

While learning mathematics, students will actively engage in the use of hands-on materials  and appropriate technology.  Students will also apply mathematical concepts in the unit they are studying to real-life situations.  

Mathematics has its own language and the acquisition of vocabulary is crucial to a student's understanding.  Students will be encouraged to correctly use concepts, skills, symbols, and vocabulary that are unique to mathematics.   

Daily homework will rarely be given.  However, students are encouraged to use the linked websites, especially IXL, as well as their math notebook and other document to help them review and reinforce concepts taught in class.   I look forward to a wonderful school year!
