Ms. Steagald's 6th Grade Mathematics
Dunnellon Middle School
6th Grade Mathematics Syllabus
Teacher: Ms. Steagald
Dear students and parents,
Welcome to an exciting year at Dunnellon Middle School. I look forward to teaching our new 6th graders and creating an engaging classroom throughout the year. We will be teaching mathematics using the Digits program which offers a number of interactive resources online, and in the classroom. Students will have access to these materials at school and at home using the internet on their computers, smartphones, tablets, etc. Extra resources will also be provided for those without internet access at home. This year will be a very important milestone in learning mathematics; never the less we will all be making the best and most efficient use of our time together.
Textbook: The students will have access to the Digits textbook on-line By going into their student portal. Click on the e-textbook tab at the bottom of the page. This will take you to their on-line text books. Look for Pearson Realize. Homework helper textbooks will also be provided. (2 volumes)
Classwork, and Quizzes
Tests or Projects
Students will recieve a 50 for any incomplete assignments.
- Mechanical Pencils or #2 Pencils
- Notebook Paper (Wide or College Ruled)
- 6 Pronged Duo Tang Folders with pockets

Expectations: Every student is expected to come into the classroom with a positive attitude. All students will respect one another, the teachers and the faculty. Students need to come prepared to class every day and work during the whole class. Participation in class activities is crucial in the learning process. They will need to bring their 1Duo Tang Folder, mechanical pencil, notebook paper and spiral notebook to class every day!
