6th Grade Mathmiller.firstname.lastname@example.org
My name is Ms. Deja Miller and I am a graduate of Elizabeth City State University where I majored in Elementary Education with a concentration in mathematics. I have taught in Maryland and North Carolina in both public and charter schools. The grades I have taught include 3rd grade, 5th grade, and 6th grade. I believe that all children can learn in spite of any circumstance when given the necessary support. My education, experiences, and love for learning have helped me to build a foundation in becoming the best educator that I can be for the scholars at Sugar Creek Charter School. I look forward to partnering with students and families to help make this year a great learning experience in mathematics.
I will be teaching the following courses this school year:
MATH 6-This course is designed for all 6th Grade students and for those students who meet the established criteria and requirements. The content in this course follows the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. In Grade 6, instructional time will focus on five critical areas: (1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; (2) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, including negative numbers; (3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations with variables; (4) developing understanding of statistical thinking; and (5) relating the concepts of area, surface area, and volume in geometric figures. Students will engage in the conceptual understanding of these standards to develop procedural fluency using the Eureka Math curriculum. At the end of this course, students will take the Grade 6 End-of-Grade (EOG) Exam.
ADVANCED MATH 6 This course is designed for those students who meet the established criteria and requirements for Advanced Math in the school. The content in this course follows the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. The students enrolled in this course will be expected to complete Math I by the end of the 8th grade. In addition to the standards expected in Math 6, Advanced Math 6 students will complete extensions to include computing with all rational numbers; solving ratios and proportions; solving equations and inequalities involving applications of area, surface area, and volume; and comparing data sets to analyze their center and spread. Students will engage in relevant and authentic problems around the standards and will also be expected to recognize potential problems, analyze errors, solve problems proficiently and use complex reasoning. At the end of this course, students will take the Grade 6 End-of-Grade (EOG) Exam
