Back to School Night Math 6 Thank you for coming this evening! Colleen Mitchell Math 6 Thank you for coming this evening! Colleen Mitchell

 Book titled “Mathematics Course 1: numbers to Algebra” - the Blue Book  Students: bring your book every day or be willing to share a book.  Follows California Mathematics Standards  Goal of 6 th Grade Math: › good solid foundation for all future math classes

Homework Homework is Monday – Friday Homework is typically out of the Blue Math book. Sometimes it will be a worksheet. Homework is corrected at the beginning of the period. Students then ask questions about the problems they did not understand / got incorrect. An organized binder is key: keep corrected math homework in binder. After every test, homework can be kept at home or recycled. Need 2 sections/dividers in binder: Class Notes/Bellwork Homework

 Bell Work - practice what we've learned and prepare for what we are going to learn today.  Correct Homework - students correct their own homework.  Questions about Homework - time when students are encouraged to ask question about the homework. Might be questions about problems they did not understand or got incorrect.  Class Notes - students take notes on new concept and practice solving example problems.  Start Homework - new homework assignment is started in class. Students are encouraged to scan the assignment for any problems that they might have questions about before the end of the period, so they can feel successful at home when finishing the assignment.

Grades 65% Test & Quizzes 30% Homework/ Bellwork 5% Group Work/ Participation Current grade updated frequently on Q Zangle parent portal.
