Grades 6, 7 & 8 Math

April 2022

Hello 6th Grade Students and Families, 

New this spring: Our class is finally on the Remind app. Check your email for an invitation!

ONLINE ACCESS FROM HOME
Students do not need a computer to access Google Classroom or IXL. A smartphone or tablet works just fine. Every student has a school gmail account and should be checking their email on a regular basis. Parents can log into their child’ account to see what they have been working on or sign up for weekly Google Classroom updates via email. 

HOMEWORK
Students lose points for assignments turned in late. Assignments completed incorrectly will be returned ungraded and must be redone for credit. Students ALWAYS have something to work on for homework and should spend at least 20 minutes a day practicing math skills at home. If they have completed every assignment posted in Google Classroom then they should log into IXL and practice suggested skills.  

TUTORING
Math tutoring is being offered from 2:30-3:30 pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays with Ms. Franklin. Any student in 6th grade is welcome to attend tutoring once a signed permission slip has been returned.

Current Topic: Area, Surface Area, and Volume

Students are about to begin practicing finding the area and volume of triangles, trapezoids, and parallelograms. .

Area is the amount of space a flat object takes up.

Surface Area is the total area of all the surfaces of a three-dimensional figure. 

Volume is the amount of space a three-dimensional figure takes up. 
 

The next time you go to a store, check out the home decor section with your child and show them the area rugs. A strong understanding of area and volume are needed if you want to find the right size rug or dresser for your home.  

Math Agenda: Includes monthly calendar, current lesson notes, links to assignments, videos, review games and more…

Please contact Ms. Franklin with any questions or concerns.
