I want to let my parents know a little about the 6th grade math program. Our math program is Connected Mathematics Project, also known as CMP 2. The goal of this program is:
"All students should be able to reason and communicate proficiently in mathematics. They should have knowledge of and skill in the use of the vocabulary, forms of representation, materials, tools, techniques, and intellectual methods of the discipline of mathematics, including the ability to define and solve problems with reason, insight, inventiveness, and proficiency." (http://connectedmath.msu.edu/)
Units in CMP math are the following:
Data About Us Prime Time Bits and Pieces I Shape and Design Bits and Pieces II Covering and Surrounding Bits and Pieces III How Likely Is It?
Online Parent Help
Follow this link find a complete list of materials that tie in with our math program. You may print any of these materials. Notice that the information is organized by unit titles.
You can also use Web Codes, printed in your CMP2 books. Additionally, you may go directly to any of the Multiple-Choice Skills Practice, Homework Help, Did You Knows?, Active Math Activities, or vocabulary quizzes.
Another great online feature of this program is the tutorial videos, entitled VIDEO TUTOR. Take a look here for an example of a tutorial on making a LINE PLOT, one of the first lessons in Data About Us. The tutorials are available in English and Spanish.
