Reflections on Sixth Grade Year Parents, as you look towards next year and moving your child on to 7th grade, please take a moment to reflect on improvements that Griffin’s Sixth Grade could make for next year. We like to ask parents for their input towards the end of the year, as we are always looking to improve our practices for students. Your input is invaluable to us as we explore making meaningful changes to the way we do sixth grade in an effort to ease the transition from 5th to 6th, and to give the differentiated support our little Wildcats need. Thank you in advance for your input!! Please click on the link below:
The students will study measures of center this week. We will have a test over the measures of center on Friday. The measures of center are mean, median, mode, and range. The students need to know how to solve for the measures of center.
Mean add all the numbers and divide by how my number you add
Median put the numbers in order from least to greatest. Mark off one number on both sides ( low and high) repeat till you get to the middle number. If 2 numbers are in the center add the 2 numbers and divide by 2.
Mode the number that repeats the most
Range subtract the minimal value from the maximum value.
R1 R2 R3 R4 are due tomorrow we will be going to the lap to work on these but please make sure your student is also working on them at home. Anything below an 85 is a 50 in the grade book. For homework they have a ratio worksheet. For problem 4 there are 4 cats to 10 animals. The students do not have to do the decimals and percents in the last problem.
