6th Grade Math
This week we reviewed topics from chapters 4-6 on Monday. On tuesday we discussed problem solving strategies and how to explain answers. I also passed back the contest questions they had completed and answered any questions about how to solve those types of problems. Wednesday we will begin the geometry unit. Students took notes on the terminology and notation for lines, points, and planes. On thursday students talked with each other and explained the geometry terms from the previous lesson in their own words. After this everyone shared one good definition they received from a classmate. After this students were paired up and worked on practice related to chapter 7.1. On Friday I was out sick, but students should have taken notes on the terminology from chapter 7.2. They should have information about classifying angles, adjacent angles, supplementary angles, and complementary angles. Their homework over the weekend will give them some practice with this. If they have any questions about this material please either have them write them down and bring them to class or email me with them, so that I can address them in class on Monday.
