In Math we will be using a new version of the Carnegie Learning Math Series for 6th grade. This is a consumable text the students will be writing in throughout the year. In addition to the text, each student will have an Interactive Student Notebook (ISN) where students are to be creative, independent thinkers and writers. ISN’s will be used for class notes as well as for other activities to support each lesson in which students are able to express their ideas and process the information presented in class. It provides and supports organization and reinforcement of what we are learning.
Homework in Math will include extra practice handouts, projects or Khan Academy. www.khanacademy.org is a free online program that offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empowers learners to study at their own pace. In class and at home I will assign areas of focus that will strengthen your students understanding and help them to retain and apply what they are learning to real life. We will also be using Moby Max www.mobymax.com and I will create student accounts and provide information at the begining of the year.
