    Are you looking for Math Workshop Activities to use in your classroom that will not only allow you to make the best use of your planning time but also allow you to easily implement Math Workshop because the planning is already done for you?

    **Want to know more? Check out the video here to learn more about the Sixth Grade Math Workshop Concept-Based Activities!**

    Within this Weeks 1-4 Unit Bundle, you will find 32 activities provided to you for you to pick and choose, or even allow a choice among your students to determine which activities they want to work on each week.

    These low-prep activities will also allow you to spend less time prepping each week and more time spending time with your students in Guided Math, having math conferences, or assessing students.

    After many years of using Math Workshop, I dreamt about having a year-long product that was done for me and I could simply pull the activities as needed and this was the culmination of this idea.

    Included in This Download for Weeks One, Two, Three & Four:

    • Cover for Teacher Books (can be printed and slipped in a binder or used as a cover in a bound book)
    • Labels for Each Activity (with TEKS, CCSS, OAS, and no standards included)
    • Teacher Instructions for Each Activity with Information for Preparing each Activity as well as Materials Needed
    • THIRTY-TWO Activities to cover Sets and Subsets of Real Numbers, Ordering Real Numbers, Irrational Numbers, Square Roots, Scientific Notation, Writing and Solving One-Variable Equations, and Writing and Solving One-Variable Inequalities
    • Each Activity Includes Student Directions cards and Printable Components for each activity

    Each of the individual previews will give you a breakdown of what each item entails. You can download the combined preview to see all of the previews together.

    Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand informally that every number has a decimal expansion; for rational numbers show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually, and convert a decimal expansion which repeats eventually into a rational number.
    Use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers, locate them approximately on a number line diagram, and estimate the value of expressions (e.g., π²). For example, by truncating the decimal expansion of √2, show that √2 is between 1 and 2, then between 1.4 and 1.5, and explain how to continue on to get better approximations.
    Solve word problems leading to inequalities of the form 𝘱𝘹 + 𝘲 > 𝘳 or 𝘱𝘹 + 𝘲 < 𝘳, where 𝘱, 𝘲, and 𝘳 are specific rational numbers. Graph the solution set of the inequality and interpret it in the context of the problem. For example: As a salesperson, you are paid $50 per week plus $3 per sale. This week you want your pay to be at least $100. Write an inequality for the number of sales you need to make, and describe the solutions.
    Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other. For example, estimate the population of the United States as 3 × 10⁸ and the population of the world as 7 × 10⁹, and determine that the world population is more than 20 times larger.
    Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Use scientific notation and choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities (e.g., use millimeters per year for seafloor spreading). Interpret scientific notation that has been generated by technology.
