Welcome to 6 Grade Math & Science
|What’s happening on Campus?|
10/14 - Wear Blue for Anti-Bullying
Students can wear a blue shirt on Monday. Uniform bottoms are required.
10/31 Literature Day
- Be on the lookout for a sign-up to help support activities taking place in 6th grade.
- If you would like to come celebrate in the festivities, please stop by the office & get a visitor badge.
- A letter went home Friday that covers costume expectations and different activities taking place throughout the day.
|What are we studying in Math & Science?|
Math - Unit 2 Ratios and Proportions
Students take notes daily. The summary at the end of each lesson is very helpful in review of skills/concepts covered during the lesson.
IXL - an adaptive online support practice tool. (standards indicated on the board in class)
Students should be practicing on IXL approx. 20 minutes daily.
An incentive is provided for Champions to earn extra points on their weekly assessments with 100% mastery of particular standards identified in class.
Khan Academy - online videos, practice, and assessments.
Videos are very helpful in reinforcing skills and ,concepts learned in class.
6.RP.A.1 - Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities.
6.RP.A.3 - Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.
6.RP.A.3.A - Make tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole-number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Use tables to compare ratios.
Science - Metabolism
Elisa is always tired and we are trying to find out why. Students are analyzing how proteins and starch are broken down into amino acids and glucose. Our body transportes these molecules through the different body systems into our cells. The mitochondria rearrange the molecules through the process of cellular respiration where energy is released.
Amplify - online curriculum where students make predictions, answer questions, read articles, and manipulate a simulation to develop a deeper understanding of the concept.
