Mr. Overboe 6th Grade Class
Welcome to Mr. Overboe's class. Math is all about learning to be better problem solvers. You will be asked to solve problems each day. In addition to using Big Ideas Math as an important text and online resource, we will also be doing PBL's as an important way to demonstrate learning. Although you are responsible for your own math understanding, you should also be prepared to work in cooperative teams while learning mathematics.
The focus in math in 6th grade is on rational numbers, ratios and rates, expressions, and equations. We will also be learning about geometry and statistics as well as graphs and data displays. In STEM Math 6 we will be beginning on the 7th grade units after spring break. We will be working with positive and negative numbers, rational numbers, and be doing more advanced work with equations and expressions.
In 7th grade the major math concepts are integers, proportions, percents, and algebra. Other key concepts that students will be studying are scale drawings, circles, and probability.
