# MON 3.23.20

Today, we went over our decimals homework, learned about probability, and I showed the students how to insert a Drawing into their Google docs.

There were some connectivity issues, so to help out,
I have decided to record videos of all my lessons. Video links will be on Google Classroom, so that students can revisit the material anytime.

# At Home Math Learning update

Students will continue to do their math work remotely. We will meet M W F 10:15 – 11:15 as usual. using this link.

We are starting Unit 5 of Illustrative Mathematics. You can access an overview of the unit here. Assignments will be managed through Google Classroom, with additional practice using Khan Academy. My class times are M, T, F 10:15 a.m. -11:00 a.m. Students should use this link to join our Google Meets.

# Weeks 12/13

We have been so busy with the move to our new space, that I have not had time to post. I hope you can forgive me.

We have started our measurement work – naming units of measurement, knowing whether the unit should be used for indicating length, weight or volume, and converting units. We are continuing to review area and equivalent ratios. Th e students are absolutely loving our new space!

Student Goals

• Generalize (orally and in writing) that it takes more of a smaller unit or fewer of a larger unit to measure the same quantity.
• Given a measurement in one unit, estimate what would be the same amount expressed in a different unit, and explain (orally) the reasoning.

# Week 7 Representing Ratio

Understanding Volume Ratio Diagrams  Ratio Card Sort Double Number Lines  # Week 6 – Ratio

Ratios and Ratio Language • Comprehend the word “ratio” (in written and spoken language) and the notation (in written language) to refer to an association between quantities.
• Describe (orally and in writing) associations between quantities using the language “For every of these, there are of those” and “The ratio of these to those is a:b (or a to b).”
• Draw and label discrete diagrams to represent situations involving ratios.

Student interpretations of a 1:2 ratio:   Area of Irregular Shapes

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.G.A.1
Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes  # Week 5 – Discovering a Formula

Students reviewed the important concepts from our recent investigations, and determined a formula for the area of ANY parallelogram using the base and the height. Students drew diagrams to show that the area of a triangle is half the area of an associated parallelogram. Students determined a formula to find the area of ANY triangle.
