During this year of mathematics, students will explore a wide variety of topics including algebraic reasoning; integers; rational numbers; proportional relationships; graphs; percents; collecting, displaying and analyzing data; geometric figures, measurement; geometry; probability; and multi-step equations.

This Week in 6th Grade Math

This week, the 6th graders are working on building algebraic skills and knowledge. They will take a quiz on Tuesday on sections 3.1 – 3.2, and will take a test on all of Chapter 3 on Wednesday, November 8th.

I use Google Classroom (click here for linkas my main way to communicate with students during the school year. I post slides from class, announcements, and any homework assignments that they can turn in electronically. As a parent or guardian, you can also sign up to receive updates about what I post on Google Classroom.

Math Help Times

If I an unable to adequately address a student’s questions during class, or if a student has additional questions about the material, I strongly encourage those students to come see me for extra help. I am currently teaching a class during the normal study hall time. However, I am available to help students with math at the following times:

  • Before school (7:30-7:50)
  • During recess (11:53 – 12:10)
  • After school (3:00 – at least 3:30)
