6th Grade Math
This week was all about geometry. On Monday there was a quiz on section 1-4 of chapter 7. Tuesday we talked about congruent figures. Students were able to write congruence statements for the corresponding sides and able to fill in missing information when they were told that two figures were congruent. On Wednesday we discussed circles and the terminology specific to them. Students worked with a partner to identify radii, diameters, chords, central angles, and arc's for ten different circles. After the partners shared what was special or interesting about the circle they started with. On Thursday we discussed circle graphs. I made a point to show that calculating central angles is just solving a proportion. On Friday students were able to construct with a compass and straight edge a congruent line and a perpendicular bisector. Next week we will spend time reviewing on Monday and Tuesday. The chapter 7 test is on Wednesday.
