Number Sense Term 2: 
We are currently working through out Number Sense unit for Term 2. The year-long overview of our math curriculum is located below, "Math Overview Grade 6" 

We will be covering the following items in this unit: 
- Review of multiplying and dividing decimal numbers (no calculators allowed) 
- Review converting fractions, decimals and percents 
-Ratios (part-to-part, part-to-whole), equivalent ratios and Ratio word problems
-percents of a number 
-percent word problems
-unit rate--> word problems

For additional practice at home the following websites will be useful :
https://www.khanacademy.org/math/on-sixth-grade-math/on-number-sense-numeration (lessons, videos and practice questions available) 
https://ca.ixl.com/math/grade-6 (work through questions for any unit in the Grade 6 curriculum) 
http://tech.rtms.ca/programs/xtramath (here you will find how to use xtramath.org which is a math drill program and will help you practice basic math skills) 
Other options to practice math at home: 
- write a reflection about connections you see between the math we are doing in the classroom and where you see or use it outside of the classsroom (ie. where do you see ratios? When do you see ratios? Why are they useful? )
-Write a story about a math concept we are working on (ie. write a creative story that involves unit rate--> a problem that links to the cost of something) 
- create a study guide with key concepts, definitions and example questions 

Please find below some useful videos for review or additional practice of concepts covered in our Number Sense Unit:
