Subject AreaMath
Grade Level6th
Week #32
Unit of InstructionFunctions
Standard(s) Taught

Use square root and cube root symbols to represent solutions to equations of the form x2 = p and x3 = p, where p is a positive rational number. Evaluate square roots of small perfect squares and cube roots of small perfect cubes. Know that √2 is irrational.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• recognize perfect squares and non-perfect squares and numbers that are perfect cubes.
• recognize taking a square root of a number as the inverse of squaring that number and taking a cube root of a number as the inverse of cubing that number.
• evaluate the square root of a perfect square and the cube root of a perfect cube.
• justify that the square root of a non-perfect square will be irrational and that the cube root of a non-perfect cube will be irrational. • determine positive solutions for equations of the form x2 = p and x3 = p
• explain why 2 is irrational.
• relate perfect squares and perfect cubes to geometric squares and cubes using square tiles and square cubes.

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

We will be testing on Functions on Thursday 4-11-19

Assignments Due

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

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)  8th Grade F14, F19

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

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) Function Mathspace 

I-Ready Functions (4 lessons) Square and Cube Roots (1 lesson) 

**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. 

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
