This year in 6th grade math, we will be focusing on the following topics:
Ratios and Unit Rates
Arithmetic Operations Including Dividing by a Fraction
Expressions and Equations
Area, Surface Area, and Volume Problems
This course will ask students to focus on mathematical language to help strengthen tools for picturing, stating, and executing mathematical problems. We will become investigators through the integration of technology to help become experts in topics, while discovering new and innovative ways to see and learn mathematics in different forms. I encourage students to use the websites listed online to study and review at home as often as possible. Homework will be extremely important in determining your success in this class. Going home and practicing what was learned in class is an excellent tool to strengthen your understanding of the material.
I look forward to an exciting year together as we discover the wonderful world of mathematics and develop the tools necessary to become life-long learners.
