Ms. Heitman's Homepage - It has been a blessing to teach this great group of kids!
We are finishing out the year with our unit on geometery. We will be working hard until the very last day of class. Students, please keep your focus.
St. Joseph's Academy Math Tournament was held February 2. Fifteen 6th graders attended and participated in tests and games. Several students won places in several different divisions and all had a great time working on math and being with friends.
CHECK THE 6TH GRADE CALENDAR FOR IMPORTANT DATES - Including dates for morning math help
Use the ixl app to practice math skills. Every student has their own user name and password!
1st, 2nd, 4th periods: - see calendar for ixl due dates
The end of the school year is upon all and we are busy learning all about geometry. Students will have a Chapter 6 test Friday, May 13. The students will need to:
write an equation relating the measures of two angles and find angle measures
find the measure of all four angles for intersecting lines
know all vocabulary
know the formula and use it to find area of parallelograms, triangles, trapezoids, circles
know the formula and use it to find circumference of circles
find area of irregular figures by breaking them into parts
5th period: - see calendar for ixl due dates
The end is near and students will learn about right triangles and how to apply the pythagorean theorem. Students will also find volume and surface area of prisms and cylinders.
Chapter 7 TEST; May 11
The students will need to know:
name all solids and understand how to draw nets
find volume and surface area of prisms as well as cylinders
describe cross sections
SPIRALS WILL BE DUE WEDNESDAYS!
Students will have approximately 3-4 per 9 weeks. Now that we have ixl to use, we will have fewer math spirals.
Often test and quiz dates are moved....but always back a day or two depending upon class preparedness.
Daily homework will be posted on the board in my room and not online. 3 POINT EACH WHEN CHECKED
Supplies needed daily:
book, workbook, sharpened pencil, calculator (used heavily 2nd half of year), binder
Math book and resources:
All students will be issued a math textbook, Prentice Hall Course 2 Mathematics and associated workbook/note taking guide. Students may bring the textbook home however the book and workbook are both accessible on the website. The book's website is a GREAT resource for the students.
Book Website: www.pearsonsuccessnet.com
Students will also have web access to the Course 1 book (book used in 5th grade and great for review).
Students may purchase a basic function calculator from school, $5.50.
I will hold help sessions in my classroom (typically on Tuesdays at 7:20 - see 6th Calendar for dates as they may change due to staff meetings/commitments), and needed/scheduled during recess. Students are not to enter the building UNTIL 7:20.
