6th Grade Math---The sixth graders have been working on their Algebra unit. They took the mid-chapter quiz this week. Check Powerschool to see how your student did. The end of the chapter is solving equations. Students will solve equations containing all four of the operations. Students should practice talking mathematically at home. Have your students explain what they did in class using the vocabulary in their notebooks. This will help students on their chapter assessment when answering the essay question.

The second half of the chapter contains concepts requiring precision, perseverance, and daily practice. Student need to be reviewing assignments daily. Please check in with your student to make sure they are taking their math home even if they finish the written part in study hall. Daily review of the notes will benefit the students greatly.
Algebra—Graphing, tables and equations are the focus of chapter 4. Students will continue working through chapter 4 next week. Students needs rulers and graph paper or need to explore on their iPads. Students will be graphing. Each graph needs to be neat and accurate. The visual representations can be either hand drawn or done on the iPad. It is the student’s learning preference, either is acceptable to me.
