6th Grade Math
This week I began with section 7.2 which is about angles and angle pair relationships. Students were able to identify adjacent, supplementary, and complementary angles. On Tuesday the focus of the class was triangles. We discussed how to classify them according to side measurements and angle measurements. Students were able to determine the measure of an angle in a triangle using the fact that the sum of the angles in a triangle is 180 degrees. On Wednesday we classified polygons. Students were able to identify polygons as regular or irregular and categorize them by the number of sides from 3 to 10. The second half of class was devoted to risk level practice with some students working on mathletics for about 5 minutes. On Thursday we reviewed the material. Students were given the study guide as well as a review handout to work on. Friday I only met with 6A, so students were given the option of working on their study guide or watching short video's related to pi (since Saturday is pi day). On Monday there is a quiz on 7.1-7.4.
