Each Monday, new concepts will be introduced in a fun, hands-on, supportive classroom environment. I want your child to fall in love with math this year! They will leave class with an assignment of daily, independent work to reinforce introduced concepts. This work be completed at home, corrected by you, and brought into class the following week for my review. Periodically, your child will take a test at home to identify any areas needing reinforcement. I will grade these tests myself and provide your child with reteaching and/or reinforcement activities to solidify learning, if needed.
Most students require consistent review to keep from forgetting all their hard-earned math knowledge. Because of this, I have also incorporated a short, spiral review, to be completed each day, into this course. This review is called 180 Days of 6th Grade Math and is OPTIONAL.
I will be utilizing the same math curriculum as the middle school and high school math courses taught at ILA to provide a seamless transition as your child moves on to their upper level math courses. This curriculum is not aligned to the Common Core. Materials can be purchased used on Amazon or from previous ILA students. I will send out an email to registered families with materials for sale from this year’s students.
