Math lesson for 6th grade for teaching 4 quadrants. Video instruction, worked examples, guided practice, and instructor notes.
To download all of Grade 6 for Windows or Mac, see https://guzintamath.com/downloads/guzintamath6.html.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for teaching about the 4 quadrants, rational numbers, reflections in the plane, solving one-step equations, and properties of operations--all key concepts in 6th grade.
NEW 5.0 version contains a slicker look, an exploratory module on creating point reflections on the coordinate plane across the x-axis, y-axis, and origin, and extra practice questions which appear progressively over 3 weeks from starting the app.
The 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.
This math 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: Quadrants in the Plane focuses on reasoning about the coordinate plane by plotting points and their reflections across the x- and y-axis and across both axes and observing the patterns in the signs of the coordinates in different quadrants. Students also apply the Commutative, Associative, and Distributive Properties for multiplication and addition to simplify addition and multiplication expressions. The third module introduces solving one-step equations with variables in the context of real-world situations.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for teaching about the 4 quadrants, rational numbers, reflections in the plane, solving one-step equations, and properties of operations--all 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 an interactive coordinate grapher students can use to explore symmetry on the coordinate plane.
