The first session of this engaging year-long 6th grade mastery math course will cover exponents, place value, decimal numbers and measurement through interactive slides, student practice, real world problem solving, fun activities and games!

Class experience

```6th graders will be able to demonstrate mastery of the following math concepts:
--expressing repeated multiplication in exponential form and vice versa
--using powers of ten to denote place value through expanded and exponential notation
--identifying decimal numbers as fractions written in the base 10 system
--matching metric units to the correct type of measurement
--approximating conversions between metric and U.S. Customary units
--matching metric prefixes to the correct place value compared to the base unit
--converting between metric units using place value```
`I am a certified teacher (Grades 1-6) with a Masters in Teaching and over 20 years of classroom, small group and one-on-one experience. Math has been my focus for the past 5 years, and I have taught this specific 6th grade Mastery Math Method for 3 years.`

Homework will consist of practice problems in the workbook, or within interactive slides or Nearpod. Occasionally a project connecting math to the real world (for example taking measurements or creating a budget) may be assigned, but students will be given some time in class to work on it as well. All homework, as well as additional resources, will be posted on Outschool Classroom.
On class days, I suggest that students take a few minutes directly following class to finish any assigned classwork they were unable to complete.

`In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:NearpodGimkitIXL LearningGoogle FormsGoogle JamboardGoogle SlidesBlooket`
```.css-47miec{margin-top:0rem;}We will be using the third-party websites listed below that provide interactive, fun opportunities for building mastery and fluency of math concepts and skills:
Nearpod: Educational, interactive tool for presenting my own slide-show lessons and activities (such as matching, drag-and-drop, etc.) I will post a direct link in the Zoom chat that will take students directly into the lesson, they only need to enter their first name or nickname so that I know who is who within the lesson. * No account or personal information needed.
Google Jamboard: A great interactive tool for collaborative learning. I will send a direct link in the Zoom chat that will allow students to enter directly into the specific Jamboard without any kind of sign-up * No account or personal information needed
Blooket and Gimkit: Students love playing these fun, fast-paced games with math question banks that I am able to create and taylor to the needs of the class. The report I see after each game serves as a great informal assessment. I will post a direct link in the Zoom chat, students will simply enter their first name of nickname and begin playing the game. *No account or personal information needed
Google Slides: I will usually use Google Slides to present lessons through the screen share function, but may at times give students the link for activities or games that I have created. *No account or personal information needed
Google Forms: I will use Google Forms to create the Lesson quizzes/tests. Students can complete the quizzes on paper first, and then transfer their answers into the Google Form and submit to me for an easy way to correct and give feedback *Again, no account  or personal information needed```
