Q2W1 Advanced Math

TeacherKimberlie Hymes
Subject AreaAdvanced Math
Grade Level6th
Week #10
Unit of InstructionProportionality, Ratios, and Rates
Standard(s) Taught


Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.

c. Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g. 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• model percents and write a percent as a fraction over 100 or a decimal to the hundredths place.
• calculate the percent of a given number by using visual representations (e.g., strip diagrams, percent bars, one-hundred grids)
• write a percent as a rate per one-hundred.
• find the whole when given both the part and the percent using tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, and tables of equivalent ratios.
• use a ratio as a conversion factor when working with measurements of different units.
• manipulate and transform units appropriately when multiplying or dividing quantities.
• understand and explain that Pi is a ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.

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.

We will take our next DIA on Monday 10/22 for Period 1 and Friday 10/26 for Period 8

Assignments Due

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

IXL: (Monday/Wednesday/Thursday) S2, S6, S9

Mathspace: DIA Review #2       Period 1 Due Monday 10/22

                                                    Period 8 Due Friday 10/26



Additional Resources

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
