Online Day 1 – 6th Grade Math

Good morning! Welcome to the first day of online learning! I know that this is new for all of us! We’ll start off easy and get ourselves used to doing this for the next couple of weeks. Please only do work for the day that you have my class so that you will not spend all day doing work for every class. If you look below, you will see what days your class will need to do this assignment. Please work through things in the order that they are listed. If you have any question about how to log on or don’t understand something, I will be available for you to email between the hours of 9:45 and 2:45 during the school week. If you email me after those hours, I will get back to you the next school day.

The following assignments are for Monday 3/16 and Tuesday 3/17: (Periods 1, 2, and 3 – Monday) and (Periods 4 and 5 – Tuesday)

Standard: MGSE6.EE.9 Students should be able to use variables to represent two quantities; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable, and analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation.

Step 1: Watch the following videos to review what we have learned in class about dependent and independent variables. Remember: If someone is independent they usually do things without waiting on someone else. If they are dependent, they usually wait for someone to make the first move before they will do anything. This is the same in math! Independent variables are always first (x-axis) and dependent variables are always second (y-axis).
