Math lesson for 6th grade for teaching expressions. Video instruction, worked examples, guided practice, and instructor notes.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for teaching about writing numeric expressions and expressions with positive exponents--key concepts in 6th grade.
NEW 5.0 version contains a slicker look, an exploratory module on modeling fraction comparison using an interactive modeling tool, and extra practice questions which appear progressively over 3 weeks from starting the app.
This lesson app also includes the popular Practice Meter feature, which can keep track of each student's practice level for this app across sessions. The purpose of the Practice Meter is to motivate students to come back and revisit this content and complete modules at regular intervals. Revisit the lesson app to keep your Practice Meter out of the red (or in the blue). It becomes easier over time to maintain your practice level above the key levels of 80 or 25, because the meter depletes much more slowly after a week, then a month, then 3 months, has passed.
The lesson app also includes a NOTES feature: helpful tips for students, self-explanation questions, further information, and even suggestions for extension or family involvement--for every question and example!
Guzinta Math: Numeric Expressions focuses on writing numeric addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division expressions to represent problem situations and simplifying powers with positive exponents. An interactive variable calculator allows students to also explore the reasoning involved in manipulating and isolating algebraic expressions. Finally, a Towers of Hanoi game is included, just for fun.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for teaching about numeric expressions and introductions to exponents--key concepts in 6th grade. The app includes detailed instructor notes for each guided practice problem, with notes about extending discussion around each worked example and problem.
Instructors and/or students can turn on and use the new canvas feature (with improved writing functionality) in the app to write all over the screen--take notes, highlight key terms and ideas, show work, etc.
The fourth module includes the Towers of Hanoi game. This is a fun and challenging puzzle for all ages. Try to solve each level in the minimum number of moves. And of course, explore the pattern involved in the minimum number of moves for a given number of discs.
