Welcome to your child’s 6th Grade Math Class On Team (6B) Where we try to make sense of numbers TEAM INFO Parent Email(s) – laptops in POD o Field Trip(s) – 2 main trips o * Skateland (ties to math/ratios) o * Park by DV for Team Day Parent Portal (on school web page) Some tidbits about me 4th, gifted reading & math, 6th & 8th grade honors English, Humanities, 6th & 7th grade math been at AMS four years (opened it) trained in “new” math delivery trainer of teachers in new math delivery MATH Teachings Based on National Common Core Standards and current Arizona State Standards Idea is to make students THINK(!) Process, Discuss, Prove… It’s no longer about, “I just know the answer.” 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 6th Grade Focus In Grade 6, instructional time should focus on four critical areas: (1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; (2) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers; (3) writing, interpreting, solving expressions and equations; (4) developing understanding of statistical thinking. (Vanderbilt University) 6th Grade Common Core Standards Ratios and Proportional Relationships Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems. The Number System Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to divide fractions by fractions. Compute fluently with multi-digit numbers and find common factors and multiples. Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers. 6th Grade CCS #2 Expressions and Equations Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions. Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities. 6th Grade CCS #3 Geometry Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume. Statistics and Probability Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables Develop understanding of statistical variability. Summarize and describe distributions. Homework Policies Homework given Monday – Thursday (rarely, if ever on Friday) No homework = Lunchtime Homework Club Homework is not direct part of the grade, but does affect performance on class work, quizzes, and tests. Assessments There are different types of assessments with different focuses: State – usually end of school year District – benchmarks at the end of each quarter Classroom – quizzes throughout a unit; test at end of unit These assessments are graded and will be on your child’s agenda as well as the TEAM calendar Most classroom assessments can be retaken Volunteers & Donations We do need volunteers for field trips and other TEAM activities. If you would like to be a part of our activities email me with VOLUNTEER in the SUBJECT LINE DONATIONS: Please see our supply list and watch for requests throughout the year on our team newsletter – and thank you for any donations to our classroom and the Team 7th Grade Focus In Grade 7, instructional time should focus on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and threedimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples. 7th Grade Common Core Standards Ratios and Proportional Relationships • Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems. The Number System • Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers. 7th Grade CCS #2 Expressions and Equations • Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. • Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions Geometry • Draw, construct and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them. • Solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area, and volume. 7th Grade CCS #3 Statistics and Probability • Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population. • Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations. • Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.
