    Math is Real

     

      6 North Team 

    I adore math and I am certain that you will feel the same way! It's something you will use everyday of your life, no matter what path you take. A strong background in mathematics can unlock unlimited opportunities in your future!
     
    In sixth grade mathematics you will (1) use concepts of ratio and rate to solve real-world problems; (2) understand division of fractions and extend your knowledge of rational numbers (including negative numbers); (3) write, interpret, and use expressions and equations; analyze and develop formulas for area, volume, & surface area; & (5) develop an understanding of statistical thinking. The best part about sixth grade is the exposure to the 7th grade curriculum towards to end of the school year! :)
     
    Grading Policy

    I look forward to learning and growing with you and I am excited to show you what mathematics is all about.
    Let's Do the Work this 2018 - 2019 school year!
     
    Go down deep enough into anything and you will find mathematics.  ~Dean Schlicter
