Thank you for entrusting your child to GSC. It is my pleasure to work with you to help them develop their talents to their fullest potential. I am looking forward to a fun and challenging year of learning math!
We are preparing our students for a faith-filled life of learning, leadership, and love for others.
We will be begin our year by continuing to develop our number sense. We investigate our base 10 number system and will strengthen our understanding of computations with whole numbers.
The students have a user name and password that allows them to access the online versions of the textbook and practice book as well as additional material. To visit the login, please click on the link to the site: think central
As we start the year, students will be exploring the order of operations including number expression that contain exponents.
The first topic we are exploring in Grade 6 is integers. Students will identify integers in real life applications. Students will learn to compute with integers.
For their summer assignment, students reviewed operations with integers. We will begin the year exploring rational numbers and their operations.
As we begin the year, students will be working with variables and functions. Students will be exploring the graphs of functions. There are online lesson quizzes and reviews for each section of the book. Prentice Hall Algebra 1
Students in grades 6-8 will have iPads. Please download the following free apps:
