This year we will be studying 6th grade Math, preparing for next year's Pre-Algebra.  This class will include many activities, including:  discussions, online learning, quizzes and/or tests, worksheets, and videos.  The beginning of the year will consist of refreshers of skills that you have already learned.  As with all of our classes, this class will go right into activity when we start the school year on August 28.  Our main textbook will be provided at:  http://www.scuc.txed.net/webpages/jteske/index.cfm?subpage=44477 (Go Math), though there will be plenty of other supplementary materials.  We will also be using software called Easy Peasy Math, where a lot of our videos will come from.

Math is a tricky subject, so you may go through some skills more quickly than others.  The schedule listed below is inter-changeable, so that extra days can be taken for those "harder" skills as needed.  Listed in the order in which they will be studied, here are the following topics which you will learn:
