Teacher Kimberlie Hymes Math 6th 27 Expressions and Equations
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.6.EE.3.9
Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem from a variety of cultural contexts that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• explain the independent variable and the dependent variable in a relationship.
• use variables to represent two quantities.
• identify relationships between tables, graphs, and equations.
• recognize that a change in the independent variable creates a change in the dependent variable such as the following: As x changes, y also changes.
• write an equation to express the quantity in terms of the dependent and independent variables.

Classroom Activities

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards.

Wednesdays we do not complete our rotation. We work lessons customized to each students level on I-Ready. These lessons are customized to each learning level and scaffolds the current unit for each student

DIA 3 Thursday/Friday March 7-8

Assignments Due

The week students will be assigned the following to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)   BB10

students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments.

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday)  DIA Practice Assignment

DIA 3 Thursday/Friday March 7-8

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems.

Students are able to complete additional practice on both Mathspace and IXL
