# Mr.McNeil's 5/6 Math

## What happened this week in 5/6 Math? (September 12 - September 16)

This week continued covering our standard (6.NS.B.2).

In this new standard students have to fluently divide multi-digit numbers using the standard algorithm. The students took a quiz on Wednesday and we continue to use a variety of problem solving techniques.

## What is going to happen next week in Math 5/6? (September 19th - September 23th)

This week we will review our standard (6.NS.B.2) and take an assessment.

In this standard students have to fluently divide multi-digit numbers using the standard algorithm.

Monday: Finish Assignment / Homework pg. Wks. 293 Due on Tuesday

Tuesday: Online assignment Lesson 6-5

Wednesday: Study Guide for test Friday (6.NS.B.2)

Thursday: Review Study Guide for test on Friday

Friday: Test (6.NS.B.2) divide multi-digit numbers using the standard algorithm.

## 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 .

## 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

If you have a question or if there is anything I can do please let me know.

Thank you,

Mr. McNeil
