Welcome to 6th Grade Math!   I’m thrilled to be your math teacher and I look forward to working with each of you.  I know we are going to have an exciting, interesting, and fulfilling year together.  This is OUR classroom.  We are a team.  We must work together in order to achieve our goals.   My goals are to teach you the standards set for 6th grade, provide a safe, nurturing, and interesting environment, and get you to LOVE MATH.  Your goals should be to succeed in math, get along with your peers, and come to class with a positive attitude.   I have high expectations for all of you.  I KNOW we are going to have a fantastic year together!

Course Description: 

6th Grade Math reinforces basic mathematical concepts and introduces skills that are essential for all students.  Concepts, procedures, and vocabulary that students will need in order to be successful in upper-level algebra and geometry courses are introduced and continually practiced.  Students begin with a general review of the four basic operations. They are introduced to exponents, geometric formulas, algebraic concepts, ratios, percentages, and adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing signed numbers.  6th Grade Math students work extensively with fractions, mixed numbers, decimals, and estimating.  Problem solving strategies are also an integral part of the curriculum.


Classroom Rules:

1. Bring supplies (notebook, paper, pencil) to class every day.

2. Respect all property, classmates, and teachers at all times.

3. Remain in your seat and quite—keeping your hands, feet, and objects to yourself.

4. Food and drink are not allowed in the classroom.

5. Follow all classroom procedures.


Classroom Procedures:

·         When the bell rings, you are to be in your seat and working on that days Bellringer. This is the way that every class will begin.

·         Every time you turn in an assignment, you must have your name, date, and class period in the top right hand corner and highlight it. You should do this for every assignment turned in.

·         When turning in papers, place them in your period’s drawer located by the door.

·         If you are turning in a paper late, you must write LATE on the top of the paper.

Each grading period there will be formal tests, quizzes (announced and unannounced), warm-up activities, class work, and homework assignments. There will also be other types of informal assessments to periodically check for understanding. Students will also be keeping a Math Notebook throughout the year. Students will have a notebook check (quiz) every six weeks.


All assignments will count as 100% of the student’s grade. Test will be counted twice in the grade book.

I feel that in order for a child to be successful, parent/teacher communication is a must. Please feel free to contact me via email  You may call and leave a message with the school, but email is quicker.
