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
--adding and subtracting decimals
--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 be assigned weekly (assigned on Wednesdays, due by the following Monday at least one hour before class) and will consist of practice problems either posted as worksheets 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 (Mondays-Wednesdays) I suggest that students take a few minutes directly following class to finish any assigned classwork they were unable to complete.

-Notebook and pencil for taking notes and working problems
--I will post further materials or workbooks needed in the classroom after enrollment (cost of materials will not exceed $50 for the entire year)

Optional (may be helpful to have some of these as visuals/manipulatives if available at home):
For Weeks 1-3: base ten or other math blocks 
For Weeks 3-5: money (variety of coins and paper bills)
For Weeks 6-8: ruler with cm and inches, Meter or yard stick, scale (kitchen, body or any other kind), large liquid measuring cup,1 or 2 liter bottle, pint, quart or gallon containers
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Ongoing informal assessment through interactive student activities and responses, as well as monitoring student classwork and homework. Weekly lesson quizzes and a final unit test at the end of the session will also be given. Parents, please contact me about the level of assessment and feedback you prefer for your student.
2 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
