Module I: June 4 – 28 | 8:00 – 11:00 a.m.Instructional time focuses on introductory topics for 6th grade math. The areas will include: (1) develop understanding of ratio and rate and use multiplicative reasoning to solve ratio and rate problems; (2) Develop competency of division of whole numbers and fractions and extend the notion of number to the system of rational numbers; and (3) developing understanding of expressions, equations and inequalities. This is a blended course model, using Carnegie Mathia software. Module II: July 2-25* | 8:00 – 11:00 a.m.Module 2 pre-requisites: A grade of B or higher in Module 1
Module 1 teacher recommendation or
Show a basic understanding of the first 2 critical areas (as evidenced by the math placement test – a score of developing or higher is considered basic).
Instructional time deepens students’ knowledge in 6th grade math from Module 1. The additional focus in Module 2 is on students developing their understanding of statistical thinking. Students continue to work on a deep, mastery level understanding of critical 6th grade concepts of: (1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; (2) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers; (3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations. In addition, this is a blended course model, using Carnegie Mathia software.Success in this class will give your child the opportunity to place at a higher level. Advanced placement is not guaranteed upon completion of one or both modules of Math 6 in Kyrene Summer Academy. 2 Options for students participating in the class: 1.Preview the 6th grade math class.
2.Potential acceleration into advanced math course
Look at placement data to verify that this is an accurate fit for your student. *No class will be held July 4th.
