    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 online using the following link http://mymathuniverse.com/digitsREALIZE . Homework helper textbooks will also be provided. (2 volumes)
