Welcome to 6th Grade Math!
It is my pleasure to be able to spend this year with you doing what I love, teaching math! Together we will work to maintain a learning environment that is respectful, supportive, challenging, and fun.
In preparation for next year's transition to West Essex Middle School, I am excited to share that our 6th grade students will be using the Connected Math Series (CMP 3).
Areas of focus will include:
- Factors and Multiples
- Basic Operations with decimals, fractions, and percents
- Ratios & Proportions
- Order of Operations
- Algebraic Concepts
- Data Analysis
- Math Vocabulary Terms
- Problem Solving
Communication is essential, please do not hesitate to contact me for any reason...no question is too small.
I look forward to a wonderful year!
