May 9_Math 6

Today we continued to work on a project I’m calling:

“I can teach a 4th grader!” where students are working on creating their own lesson plans to teach a struggling 4th grade student how to solve different kinds of problems with fractions.

Today students completed their lesson plans and began to make a poster to display all of their work.

On Monday we will complete the posters (I will be sure to post them!) and then teach mini lessons to other classmates. In the future, I would love to see if we could get some visitors (4th grade-adults) to come be taught by these fantastic 6th grade students!

Here is the homework due Monday: May_9 HW

Here is a video about fractions (I find these on youtube.com so feel free to look up better ones!)

Have a great weekend!

On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week we have been working on these review worksheets to integrate our skills of “order of operations” with already learned techniques using fractions and decimals.

April 21-23 Classwork

Today we talked about solving single variable equations in one step.

Here is a video about that…

Today we learned about the Associative and Commutative Properties of Multiplication and Addition. To do this, we needed to create superheroes with these mathemagical powers.

Here are a few that were created…

The homework is to finish the classwork that we started (packet). I will post it tomorrow or you can pick up another copy in our orange HW bin in class.

Here is the website we viewed for the properties:
