Description

Major 2020 Updates!

Perfect for virtual learning, remote learning, distance learning, eLearning, etc.

This complete bundle will greatly reduce your anxiety about the uncertainties surrounding the 2020-2021 school year due to COVID-19. These materials have built in support for remote instruction and learning, unlike anything else you will find online. After a decade of development and use with thousands of students in my district, I can personally speak to the power of these materials. As unexpected as the switch to remote instruction was for everyone, having these resources was a life saver. It made the sudden transition much less disruptive and allowed verifiable learning to take place. Assessment data showed impressive retention of new content, thanks to the embedded supports. Parents were also very thankful for the resource.

Perhaps the most unique attribute of this bundle is its versatility, both in and out of the classroom. With all of the uncertainty around in-person instruction, you can take comfort in knowing you are covered no matter the outcome. Not only do you get the entire standards-based 6th grade math content in one easy download, you also get all of the digital resources that guide your students with the individual work you assign. Just imagine differentiated practice pages supported by a virtual tutor for every question. Now imagine that tutor can speak over 300 languages and can even communicate without sound. This is the type of support you can expect with this product.

This bundle includes notes, activities, games, differentiated homework practice pages, tests, standards-based rubrics and retake tests for each of the 11 units. The color-coded answer keys make it easy to find answers quickly and explaining WHY the answers work much more efficiently. Additionally, 36 practice tutorial videos are included via QR codes, providing a personal at-home tutor experience for each homework assignment! Check out all of the specifics below.

What you get:

1. Guided Notes: A visually appealing and interactive way to teach every topic. These notes are a great resource for students, parents and teachers! Presented in a non-intimidating, fill-in-the-blank format, with a provided word bank. It is a great way to get kids to take notes and learn the content, without the need to write lengthy sentences. The notes are designed to address essential information and make it visually appealing. There are interactive components and mini investigations integrated into the notes. Your students will actually enjoy filling in the notes!

2. Practice Questions: Looking for more than a basic skills practice? This differentiated practice set has students solve problems using a variety of response types, ranging from multiple choice to word problems. There’s even space to show work right on the page! The real gem is the embedded QR codes, providing video tutorials with an integrated digital feedback system (see description below).

3. *Videos & Quizzes: Imagine math practice pages or homework assignments that come with a tutor, to guide students through every question. Now imagine that these same practice pages have an integrated quiz, to check comprehension as you go, with results visible to the student and teacher! Let’s take it one step further. Videos with subtitles, allowing the flexibility for viewing without sound. Not enough? How about subtitles that can automatically translate the content into 300+ languages! This is precisely what you will find with all 36 videos included in this bundle.

4. Quality Answer Keys: Answer keys with work! These color-coded keys provide easy to follow work, to make sense of the solutions, while quick identifying correct answers. This allows students to figure out where they went wrong. It also models effective communication of mathematical thinking.

5. Activities: Fun activities and explorations that can be used either in the classroom or at home, to complement each of the content strands you are teaching. They are engaging and interactive, custom tailored to address misconceptions while allowing for discovery.

6. Tests, Rubrics and Retakes: Quality questions that genuinely pinpoint the true level of understanding for each topic covered in a unit. All tests contain a variety of response types such as multiple choice, fill in the blank, true-false, word problems, and graph creation. The tiered difficulty of questions for each topic (Type 2: Basic question, Type 3: Word problem or increased difficulty, Type 4: Unique situation requiring the skill) provides a good depth of knowledge gauge for each strand. There is also plenty of space to show work for every problem, right on the test. The embedded innovative UPC feedback system greatly diminishes teacher grading time, allows for student reflection and targets learning. The UPC code below each question provides very specific feedback while eliminating the need for lengthy comments. The "U" identifies an understanding concern, the "P" highlights a precision mistake in the calculation and the "C" identifies a communicating thinking concern. The corresponding standards-based rubric provides an easy to comprehend single-page user-intuitive document for both students and parents. A second version of the assessment is provided as well, to accommodate for retake opportunities. This gives students more time to learn the content and a chance to show proficiency at a future date.

Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. Mathematically proficient students notice if calculations are repeated, and look both for general methods and for shortcuts. Upper elementary students might notice when dividing 25 by 11 that they are repeating the same calculations over and over again, and conclude they have a repeating decimal. By paying attention to the calculation of slope as they repeatedly check whether points are on the line through (1, 2) with slope 3, middle school students might abstract the equation (𝑦 – 2)/(𝑥 – 1) = 3. Noticing the regularity in the way terms cancel when expanding (𝑥 – 1)(𝑥 + 1), (𝑥 – 1)(𝑥² + 𝑥 + 1), and (𝑥 – 1)(𝑥³ + 𝑥² + 𝑥 + 1) might lead them to the general formula for the sum of a geometric series. As they work to solve a problem, mathematically proficient students maintain oversight of the process, while attending to the details. They continually evaluate the reasonableness of their intermediate results.
Look for and make use of structure. Mathematically proficient students look closely to discern a pattern or structure. Young students, for example, might notice that three and seven more is the same amount as seven and three more, or they may sort a collection of shapes according to how many sides the shapes have. Later, students will see 7 × 8 equals the well remembered 7 × 5 + 7 × 3, in preparation for learning about the distributive property. In the expression 𝑥² + 9𝑥 + 14, older students can see the 14 as 2 × 7 and the 9 as 2 + 7. They recognize the significance of an existing line in a geometric figure and can use the strategy of drawing an auxiliary line for solving problems. They also can step back for an overview and shift perspective. They can see complicated things, such as some algebraic expressions, as single objects or as being composed of several objects. For example, they can see 5 – 3(𝑥 – 𝑦)² as 5 minus a positive number times a square and use that to realize that its value cannot be more than 5 for any real numbers 𝑥 and 𝑦.
Attend to precision. Mathematically proficient students try to communicate precisely to others. They try to use clear definitions in discussion with others and in their own reasoning. They state the meaning of the symbols they choose, including using the equal sign consistently and appropriately. They are careful about specifying units of measure, and labeling axes to clarify the correspondence with quantities in a problem. They calculate accurately and efficiently, express numerical answers with a degree of precision appropriate for the problem context. In the elementary grades, students give carefully formulated explanations to each other. By the time they reach high school they have learned to examine claims and make explicit use of definitions.
Use appropriate tools strategically. Mathematically proficient students consider the available tools when solving a mathematical problem. These tools might include pencil and paper, concrete models, a ruler, a protractor, a calculator, a spreadsheet, a computer algebra system, a statistical package, or dynamic geometry software. Proficient students are sufficiently familiar with tools appropriate for their grade or course to make sound decisions about when each of these tools might be helpful, recognizing both the insight to be gained and their limitations. For example, mathematically proficient high school students analyze graphs of functions and solutions generated using a graphing calculator. They detect possible errors by strategically using estimation and other mathematical knowledge. When making mathematical models, they know that technology can enable them to visualize the results of varying assumptions, explore consequences, and compare predictions with data. Mathematically proficient students at various grade levels are able to identify relevant external mathematical resources, such as digital content located on a website, and use them to pose or solve problems. They are able to use technological tools to explore and deepen their understanding of concepts.
Model with mathematics. Mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. In early grades, this might be as simple as writing an addition equation to describe a situation. In middle grades, a student might apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event or analyze a problem in the community. By high school, a student might use geometry to solve a design problem or use a function to describe how one quantity of interest depends on another. Mathematically proficient students who can apply what they know are comfortable making assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that these may need revision later. They are able to identify important quantities in a practical situation and map their relationships using such tools as diagrams, two-way tables, graphs, flowcharts and formulas. They can analyze those relationships mathematically to draw conclusions. They routinely interpret their mathematical results in the context of the situation and reflect on whether the results make sense, possibly improving the model if it has not served its purpose.
