In each grade, the learning is as follows.....
6th- Begin the year with the concepts of ratios and rate formalizing their understanding of equivalent fractions. Then moving into multiplication and division of them. They continue by using the knowledge of a number line to plot integers and other rational numbers. They also learn to read, write and evaluate expressions and equations using letters.
7th-Begin the year with the concepts of ratios and rate. They will use graphs, tables and equations to work with ratios. To build upon 6th students build on their understanding of rational numbers to add, subtract, multiply, and divide signed numbers. This too, will involve using a number line. Build upon 6th with solving equations. They use linear equations to solve unknown angle problems and other problems presented within context to understand that solving algebraic equations is all about the numbers. Work with fractions, decimals and percents (converting)
- Dilation and Similarity
- Concepts of Geometry
We did an amazing job with the Thanksgiving Drive. Let's continue with season of giving for Christmas! Thank you so much for your generosity!
