Day 73: Math 6: Unit Rates / Math 6+ - Mock Trial

Math 6 students worked with Lesson 5.5: Unit Rates. This lesson is the halfway point of Topic Five.


75% of Mr. Giomini's Math 6+ students were at Mock Trial today. Those who remained worked on Khan Academy and a Kahoot! dealing with ratios, proportions, and scale drawings.


Standards addressed in today's lessons:
Math 6:
  • Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. 
Math 6+:
  • Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. 
  • Solve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed. 
  • Use ratio reasoning to convert measurement units; manipulate and transform units appropriately when multiplying or dividing quantities.

Day 71: Math 6: Calculation Quiz and Quiz Prep - Math 6+ - Calculation Quiz and Test Preparation

Math 6 students complete their weekly Calculation Quiz which is their fifth one of the quarter. New problems for next week are already on the backboard to help students with their preparation. Once the Calculation Quiz was over, students reviewed the Topic Five Mid-point in their workbook to help prepare for tomorrow's assessment.

Math 6+ students completed Calculation Quiz Five-Quarter Two.  New problems for next week are already on the backboard to help students with their preparation.

Mr. Giomini posted some review problems for the students to work on in preparation for Monday's Topic Five Post-test. Examples were provided to help with studying and to eliminate confusion.


Standards addressed in today's lessons:
Math 6:
  • Fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation.
  • Find the greatest common factor of two whole numbers less than or equal to 100 and the least common multiple of two whole numbers less than or equal to 12.
  • Understand solving an equation or inequality as a process of answering a question: which values from a specified set, if any, make the equation or inequality true? 
  • Use substitution to determine whether a given number in a specified set makes an equation or inequality true.
  • Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation. 
Math 6+:
  • Fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation.
