  1. represent and determine equivalencies among fractions, mixed numbers, decimals, and percents; and
  2. compare and order positive rational numbers.

I will be doing two Zooms this week. Traditional Math 6 (2nd and 4th hour) will be at 12:00 on Tuesday and Extended Math 6 (1st and 3rd hour) will be at 1:00 on Tuesday. I will be sending out the invitation to your Zoom in a separate email.

Complete some or all of the listed suggestions. Try to do 90 minutes of math each week.

3) IXL Ratios: (Virginia SOL 6.1) Complete to a score of 80 for each strand. https://www.ixl.com/standards/virginia/math/grade-6

) Online Textbook - Login to Office 365, Clever, Math Big Ideas, Chapter 5, section 5.1 odd problems, check answers with “Selected Answers” tab under “Contents” with the online textbook. Rework the ones you missed. If you cannot figure one out, let me know and I will help you with it.

Math Class Online Work:
 Assignments are not mandatory per PWCS.

Math Zoom Weekly Meeting will be Tuesdays at 12:00 for traditional Math 6 (2nd and 4th hour) and 1:00 for Extended Math 6 (1st and 3rd hour) each week, starting the week of April 20. This will be a time for students to come together online, touch base with me and one another, and ask questions about assignments.

My office hours for math will be on Tuesdays  from 12:00 - 1:30 beginning with a math Zoom meeting at 12:00. I would like everyone that is working online to join as a check-in if possible. This will be a time for questions, discussion of the topics, and a general weekly touch-base time.

General Information: 
I am providing review material for math objectives we have covered in class. 6th grade math teachers are beginning with state objectives and following numerical order starting with 6.1 Ratios. Each week there will be suggested activities to equal approximately 90 minutes of academic time for each core subject.

Important Notice: The 3rd Nine Weeks grading has been extended to April 24th. If you have quizzes that you would like to retake in order to improve your grade, please email me the name of the quiz so I can send one to you.

Math Online Resources:

1) Student Online Textbook - Chapters are full of lessons with videos, examples, and in the back of the book, it has the answers to odd problems so students know they are working problems correctly. If a student doesn't know why they missed a problem, he or she may email me the problem or take a picture of it with their work, and I'd be happy to work with them. To access the online textbook, students login to their Office 365 account, and go to Clever, then to Math Big Ideas.
***In my Files and Documents section of this web page, in the Math folder, you will see a folder for Math Objectives. Inside is a document that 
correlates what we cover with Virginia SOLs to where to find it in the textbook.

2) Khan Academy 6th Grade Curriculum - Click here  Although this site may not perfectly align with our Virginia Standards, the progression is very good and lots we have covered. There are great explanation videos and practice problems. If you make a free account, it will save your progress. You may also search for individual topics that you'd like more practice on.

3) IXL.com - All students have a login for IXL.com. There is lots of opportunity to advance mathematical knowledge and to continue practicing review material. If a student answers incorrectly, IXL does a great job with a Notes section as review notes to answer the question and will show how the question should have be done correctly, step by step.

4) Math Common Core Worksheets for Practice with Answers Available Click here   This is a great website for finding a quick, practice sheet of all math topics. 

5) BrainPOP To access BrainPOP, students login to their Office 365 account, and go to Clever, then to BrainPOP.

***More Online resources will be added. :)

Greetings from my living room!  I am missing the opportunity to get to know all of you!  I would like to encourage the parents to talk Math whenever possible.  This can include but is not limited to, landscape projects (calculating area and perimeter, calculating cost of mulch, and/or price of flowers etc.)  Another suggestion is cooking projects, try to encourage them to measure ingredients and possibly double or cut in half recipes.  Finally, if your job requires you to use Math, please have discussions with your children.  I am available by email anytime!  Hope to see you soon!!

March 19, 2020

Students are encouraged to practice IXL for 30 minutes using the Virginia SOL link after they log on.  

Students can search Kahoot using SOL Objective numbers found on the Green Recording sheet.

There are You Tube videos paired with every SOL topic located in the Virtual Learning Folder.

Students can complete the 3rd Quarter Benchmark Review Sheet.
