No Homework for the week of 10/1 for Mizera Math
Due to the fun times at Windy Gap, and then just two other days of school, there will be no homework this week. Have a great fall break!
Mizera Math Class
We are currently working on prime factorization. Ask your student about the Sieve of Eratosthenes (Er-uh-tos-the-knees) and how we now have a list of the prime numbers to 100. Next we are working on exponents, and then we will have a short quiz. So far, our Springboard Math Curriculum is engaging, using real world problems that we solve. Homework should be short and sweet, no more than 15 minutes, so if your child is spending more than that, please e-mail me so we can chat about it. Do Math!
Math is going very well so far in sixth grade! Next week we will be finishing Activity One (Each Activity is like a Unit, it has lessons in it.) and working on our Assessment called "For the Birds". Your child has already seen the assessment, so the grade will be on class participation, and completing the work. Questions? Please e-mail me!
It's Back to School Time!
I can't wait to meet you!
