Homework is now in Moodle.  See the directions for logging in and completing homework.

 Moodle assignments (videos and questions) - click on the link below to get to the log in page for Moodle:

https://moodle.tvcs.org/moodle/login/index.php

Your user name and password for Moodle is the same as your user name and password to unlock the computers at school.  Type them in and click "Log in". On the next screen you will see "Adams - Math - 2016".  Click on my name.  The next screen has all of my chapters from our book.  Click on "Chapter 8". The list of videos and lesson practices (or questions) will pop up.  Choose the video and lesson practice that is listed on your homework. 

 

At the top of every chapter in Moodle, there is a link to that chapter's vocabulary words in Quizlet.  Students must complete all 6 activities in Quizlet before the Vocabualry Quiz at the end of the chapter. This is a mandatory assignment, not extra credit as it is in Social Studies and Science.  Students have 2 weeks to complete the activities, but I always make it the homework assignment the night before the Vocabulary Quiz to make sure that students have time to do the activities to study for the Quiz.

 

Information about the Flipped Classroom:

The Advanced 6th Grade Math class will be a "flipped classroom". Please visit these websites to learn more about the flipped classroom:

ALEKS link - click on the link below to get to the log in page for ALEKS:

httphttps://www.aleks.com/s://www.aleks.com/

ALEKS is a program that is tied to our book.  It is completely personalized to what your child can do in 6th grade Math and what your child needs to practice in 6th grade Math.  Students must complete 30 minutes of problems on the ALEKS website every week (due Saturday night at midnight).  At the end of every 9 weeks, students must have mastered a certain percentage of 6th grade skills in ALEKS for a test grade.  Please see the syllabus listed below for specific percentage amounts.  

 

How does my child earn credit on QUIZ corrections?

Students must do 4 things to earn credit for quiz corrections. 1. Show the correct work. 2. Show the correct answer. 3. Write a sentence telling me the mistake he/she made on the quiz problem. 4. Turn it in stapled to the quiz with his/her name on it! There is an example of quiz corrections below!

 

How does my child earn 1/2 credit on TEST corrections?

Students must do the problem numbers on the new test to earn 1/2 credit back for test corrections.  For example, if a student missed numbers 3,5 8 on their test, they must complete numbers 3,5,8 on the alternate form test.  They do not have to re-do the entire test. 

 

If you have any questions, please contact me!  Thank you for sharing your child with me this year! 

 

Go Buffalo!
