Math January 2013

on January 5, 2013

This month we will be working on a Geometry unit. This unit will be based on the Grade 6 Prescribed Learning Outcomes for Space and Shape. Some of the topics we will cover are:

  • The language of geometry
  • Naming, measuring and drawing angles
  • naming, measuring and drawing of triangles based on angles
  • discovering angles in polygons
  • discovering area and perimeter for polygons

Geometry is often a well liked unit in math as it involves a different set of knowledge than traditional algorithms. Each week will will continue to have a short class on building basic mental math strategies which are vital for everyday aspects of life.

You can support your child by asking him or her to explain what topics were covered in math class each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I will try to update the blog as much as possible!
