Goals and Objectives for Math
6th grade math focuses on four critical areas designed for sixth graders to (1) connect 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 and using expressions and equations; and (4) developing an understanding of statistical thinking.
School Supply List for Math
Communication/ Graded Folders
· Students will each have a folder in the classroom where I will return graded work. Students are in charge of checking these folders daily and getting the assignments home.
Late Work/No Name Papers
· Students who do not turn in assignments on time will receive 10% off for being late.
· Students who do not turn in their assignments with no name will have 10 points taken off.
Extra Credit/Bonus Points
· Extra Credit comes from additional questions on the tests/quizzes, correcting missed problems and other additional problems that we may work on in class. There is no other way to receive extra credit.
Communication: Students should write down their homework assignments, projects and any upcoming quizzes/tests. If you have any ideas or concerns on how to enhance your child’s success in and outside of the classroom, please share them with me by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will also post homework assignments and upcoming tests/quizzes on my website: weyantmath.weebly.com
