Tiger Teacher Topics of the Week
Mrs. Jester's Math
In sixth grade Pre-AP Pre-Algebra, we will be starting our unit that deals with measures of central tendency.
"Hey diddle diddle, the median's in the middle; you add and divide for the mean. The mode is the one that appears the most and the range is the difference between."
In sixth grade math, we will be finishing our unit on ratios. We will also be converting measurements within the metric and customary systems. When changing from one unit to another, your student might find this phrase helpful.
"Horse to fly, multiply...Fly to horse divide of course."
Ask your student what this means! Your student should expect a test over this unit sometime next week.
