Students Utilize Textbooks and Chromebooks

The first quarter of the 2016-17 school year has been a busy one in Math for the fifth and sixth graders. Both groups have been working on Math concepts that will be a part of the Nebraska State Assessments, next Spring. Our current Math series, Pearson Mathematics, is broken into topics, instead of chapters. The fifth graders have completed two topics so far this year. Topic 1 was related to the place value systems of whole numbers and decimals. Topic 2 centered around adding and subtracting decimals. The sixth graders have completed Topic 1, and are currently working through Topic 2. Both of these topics deal with basic Algebra concepts. The students are learning about and using expressions, equations, variables, as well as other related concepts. We are setting the foundation for Algebra in junior-high and high school. In addition to our text, both groups of students are also using a website to practice the concepts we are working on in our textbook. The website, ixl.com, provides an extensive supply of practice problems which are grouped according to the Nebraska state standards. Students use their chromebook to access the site and work the assigned areas. Students’ scores are given as they work. This is called their “Smart Score”, and they all work to attain a score of 100 in order to move on to the next set of questions. The next quarter for the fifth and sixth graders will also be a busy one, as the fifth graders will multiply and divide whole numbers and decimals. The sixth graders will be working with equations and multiplying decimals.
