    Welcome to Sixth Grade Math!
     
     
     
    Units of Study
     
    This year in 6th grade math, we will focus on 9 units of study using Illustrative Mathematics curriculum.  These units are designed to meet the AZ College and Career Ready Standards in Mathematics.  They include:
     
    • Unit 1: Area and Surface Area
    • Unit 2: Introducing Ratios
    • Unit 3: Unit Rates and Percentages
    • Unit 4: Dividing Fractions
    • Unit 5: Arithmetic in Base Ten
    • Unit 6: Expressions and Equations
    • Unit 7:  Rational Numbers
    • Unit 8:  Data Sets and Distributions
    • Unit 9: Putting it All Together

     

     

     
    Eight Mathematical Practices
     
    1) Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
    2) Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
    3) Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
    4) Model with mathematics.
    5) Use appropriate tools strategically.
    6) Attend to precision.
    7) Look for and make use of structure.
    8) Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.  
     
     

    Homework

     

    Homework is assigned on a nightly basis.  Homework is designed to reinforce the concepts that are taught in class.  I strongly feel that parental involvement in homework is beneficial to students.  I don't want you to do your child's homework, however, it is okay to help your child when he/she is struggling with a concept or assignment.  Feel free to write me an email/note letting me know when this happens so I can spend time with your child reviewing the concepts in class.

     
     
    • It must be completed in pencil.
    • All work must be shown to receive full credit.  "NO WORK, NO CREDIT!"
    • Homework is worth 5% of the grade.
