In my monthly newsletters I provide a peek at upcoming content, common mistakes made in current units, as well as some helpful suggestions about math and organization. Click on the picture next to each month for that month's newsletter.
Welcome to Math 6 with Mr. Mains!
What is Math 6?
The Math curriculum is aligned to the NJ Student Learning Standards and Mathematical Practices. The standards develop four mathematical strands: Numbers and Operations, Geometry and Measurement, Data Analysis and Probability, and Algebra.
The lessons are generally structured with a launch activity, an explore activity, and then a summary. The summary section of the lesson is where the students summarize what they have learned and take their notes. The student instruction book, practice and problem-solving book, and math binder are the most essential components for studying, reviewing and practicing during the school year.

The following are the forms of assessments and the percent of their overall grade that will be utilized in the Math classroom:
Students will also have opportunities to take formative, non-graded assessments to check their understanding of math concepts and provide them with necessary feedback for improving their learning.
