6th Grade AVID 101

One more week! We are so proud of the growth the 6th grade have shown in improving their organization skills. We are wrapping up exploring colleges and will move on to careers. Students will get to choose a career that they would like to research. Discuss with your child what jobs they may be interested in and how you came to choose your profession. No assignments can be accepted after October 11th so please make sure all corrections and missing assignments are turned in before then.

We just finished a unit on proportional reasoning . Next will be scale figures and scale factor. We will be finding area and perimeter of shapes as a part of our studies. Make sure your child knows what these are and how to use/calculate them!
