Welcome to 6th Grade Math!
Welcome to 6th grade!!!
Welcome to the 2018 - 2019 school year! I am very excited to welcome our sixth graders this year. This is where you will be able to get updates on what we are working on each week in class.
This week we are continuing our learning about ratios in unit 2. We will be representing ratios with diagrams and discussing how to make equivalent ratios. Tuesday after school will be the re-take opportunity for our Unit 1 final assessment. Our first parent math night of the year will take place Tuesday night at MVMS at 6:15.
Please see the tabs at the top of the page to find additional resources including, contact information, grading, competencies and instructions for logging into Open Up Resources. For additional copies of homework assignments or class resources students can go to our Google Classroom.
We are excited to be introducing a new middle school math program this year. Open - Up Resources will be used by all of the middle school students this year. This program is available in digital format so students and parents can access everything from any computer without the need for a username or password.
You can find the program by following this link:
Students will be doing a lot of group work and collaborative learning with hands on activities. We will be using chrome books regularly in class as well as some printed materials.

All about Mrs. King
I am Mrs. King. This is my third year at MVMS and I am very excited to get this year underway. I bring a variety of unique experiences with me. Prior to teaching sixth grade math here for the past two years, I spent the previous four years working with students in grades K-8. I have two Master's Degrees from the University of New Hampshire and Southern New Hampshire University as well as an undergraduate degree from Wentworth Institute of Technology. My husband and I have two boys who keep us very busy outside of work.
I encourage my students to share their ideas and be actively engaged in the learning process. I want my students to bring their ideas and interests into class so we can see how anything can be connected to math. I look forward to meeting all of my students this year!
