Hello Parents and Students, 

Welcome to Math 6E.  Math 6E is an advanced placement math class.  This class covers all of 6th grade and half of 7th.  Here is some important information that you will need to know. 

Who teaches Math 6E? 

This class has a middle school math teacher, Mrs. Nelson, and a math coach, Mrs. Guerra.  A math coach is a certified teacher who plays a supportive role in the classroom.   Co-teaching allows us to reach every student. 

What do you need to bring to class?

  • 2 Whiteboard Markers
  • Whiteboard Eraser
  • Headphones

Why do you need to practice? 

You will be asked to practice math skills and vocabulary words.   Practice is for people who already know how to do something and want to move that skill into their long-term memory.   We use IXL, Study Island, and Quizlet to help you practice.

     IXL and Study Island Subscriptions

     The school has paid for each of you to have your own IXL and Study Island account.  You will have weekly assignments that will be posted on Canvas.

     Quizlet Website

     Your vocabulary words are in your One Note Notebook, under each unit.  We discuss them in class but you are responsible for studying them. I have created a Quizlet classroom for you to use to review your vocabulary words. quizlet.com

Where does your grade come from? 

80% of your grade comes from summative tests.  20% of your grade comes from formative quizzes.
