Lesson 5

by eduffy

Lesson 5

We will work together to write sentences.  Remember that a sentence has a capital letter at the beginning, a period at the end and is made of a group of words that tell about something.  Encourage your student to speak in complete sentences, which will help to understand how to write a complete sentence.  We tend to write the way we speak!

 Welcome to the Quakers Team

for the

2014-2015 school year.


             We are very excited about this year and the opportunity to work with your student. We realize that middle school can be a challenging transition for many students and for some parents too. The teachers on the Quakers team are dedicated to your child’s growth academically and socially, and are here to support your child. It is very important to have consistent communication between the teachers, students, and parents/guardians and to work as a team to ensure that your student becomes an independent lifelong learner. Please look for important information coming in the Wednesday folder.  

The Quakers Team looks forward to a great year with your 6th grader here at Beverly Hills Middle School

Extra Help

by kzee

Students may make an appointment for additional help after school.  Help will be available most days Monday-Thursdays.  


by kzee

Below is a description of each chapter (unit) we will cover in math during the 6th grade year.  

Chapter 1 Overview:  Students compute & estimate with whole numbers.  They will evaluate powers and use the order of operations to evaluate expressions, including expressions that contain variables.  Students also solve equations using mental math and learn a problem -solving plan.

Chapter 2 Overview:  In this chapter, students measure lengths and find the perimeter and area of geometric figures.  They also find actual lengths from scale drawings.  They create and interpret frequency tables and line plots, and display it in bar graphs.  They plot points in the first quadrant to make line graphs.  Students also interpret circle graphs, and describe data using mean, median, mode, and range.

Chapter 3 Overview: Students will explore decimals.  They begin with place values to hundred-thousandths, and they model decimals using money & metric lengths.  Then order decimals using a number line, and round decimals.  Finally, they find the sum or difference of two decimals or of decimal and whole number.

Chapter 4 Overview: In this chapter, students continue to investigate decimals.  They start by using the distributive property and area models to develop skill in multiplying decimals.  They explore dividing decimals by whole numbers or by other decimals and then explore multiplying and dividing by powers of 10.  Students also use metric measurements for mass, capacity, and length.

Chapter 5 Overview: Students will use area models to find equivalent fractions, re-write decimals as fractions or mixed numbers.  Finally, they rewrite fractions as decimals and explore repeating decimals.

Chapter 6 Overview: In this chapter, students estimate sums and differences of fractions and mixed numbers.  They also add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers.

Chapter 8 Overview: Students study ratios, rates, proportions, and percents.  They simplify and find equivalent ratios and rates, and they calculate and use unit rates.  They solve proportions formed by pairs of equal ratios and rates and they apply proportions to work with scale drawings.  They find a percent of a number in problems involving discounts, tax, and simple interest.

Chapter 10 Overview:  Students study to find area of polygons and solid figures and the circumference of circles.  They find the surface area and volume of solid figures and prisms.

Chapter 11 Overview:  Students will work with integers, positive and negative numbers.  They will compare, add, subtract, multiply and divide integers.  Students will also study translations on a coordinate plane.

Chapter 12 Overview:  Students will solve equations with variables.  The students will evaluate to determine the value of a variable by solving the equation using the opposite operations.  Students will solve equations involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
