Math 6

Updated 11/3/21
I am super excited to announce that we are using a brand new math curriculum in our math 6 class this school year (2021/2022)! The textbook we will be using is called Into Math Grade 6, and was published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in 2020.

Material Expectations:

Students are expected to use a 3-ring binder (1 inch- not bulky & not fancy) to keep all of their math papers in.  They should always be prepared in math with two or more pencils (mechanical would be best) and two red pens for correcting. They should not throw away any math paperwork unless directed to do so by Mrs. Goff.


Math Homework:

Students have math homework almost every night.

They generally do not have math homework on days when we have assessments.

It would really help if a parent/adult would sign off on homework below the student’s name, so that I know that parents/adults are helping and/or holding students accountable when it comes to the math homework.

Math homework is corrected at the beginning of almost every math class so students can learn from mistakes immediately which is why turning math in on time is so important.


Into Math Resources for Parents (and Students):

Have your student take you into their online “Into Math.”

Click “Discover” in the top middle of the screen.

In the bottom left, click “Family Resources.”

Students and parents can use other areas of online “Into Math” as resources to learn math more deeply.


Grading/Assessments:

Mainly students are graded from the module tests that are given at the end of each of the 16 modules. There are also Performance Tasks that may be given and graded at the end of each of the 5 units.


Attendance:

Students should do their best to attend school every day for their obvious benefit.  For more attendance information, please refer to the student handbook (hsbschools.org).
