# Mr.McNeil's 5/6 Math

## Math 5/6 Parent Teacher Conferences

Student led parent/teacher conferences are Wednesday, October 12th and Thursday, October 20th from 4-7:30 PM. The students in my 5/6 math class will sign up with their homeroom teacher and the students will lead the conference. I will be available in case you have any questions.

## What happened this week in 5/6 Math? (October 10th - October 14th)

This week we continued covering the standard 6.NS.3 where students have to fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation.

## What is going to happen next week in Math 5/6? (October 18th - October 21st)

Monday: No School

Tuesday: Study guide for test on Wednesday & Thursday (6.NS.3) . Students have to fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation.

Wednesday: Leadership Symposium so math will be very short. We will start the test if we can.

Thursday: Finish test then we will work on the Unit 2 P.B.L. " Roller Coasters"

Friday: Unit 2 P.B.L. " Roller Coasters" due you can access through Google classroom

Review Test, start our new unit where students have to Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word problems involving division of fractions by fractions.

Assign: 12-1 (odd) online. Students also can complete the online enrichment.

## The Standards for Mathematical Practice

The 8 Standards for Mathematical Practice describe the behaviors of mathematically proficient students. Mathematics teachers at all levels should seek to develop these behaviors. During this year we will focus on all of the Mathematical Practice Standards.

Practice #1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them

Practice #2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

Practice #3 Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others

Practice #4 Model with mathematics

Practice #5 Use appropriate tools strategically

Practice #6 Attend to precision

Practice #7 Look for and make use of structure

Practice #8 Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning
