• reason that familiar shapes can be put together to create composite shapes whose area is equal to that part of the sum of the areas of the joining shapes. For example, show the area formula for a parallelogram by composing it into rectangles.
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
The week students will be assigned the following to practice class concepts:
IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday) FF4
students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments.
Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) Area of Trapezoid and Parallelograms Mathspace
Area of Shapes I-Ready (2 lessons)
**Due to FSA Writing testing on Tuesday (6th Grade) and Wednesday (8th Grade) some lessons/activities may be pushed back a week. Due dates for the above assignments will be posted in gradebook.
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
