Monthly Class Update
December
Math
This month in math we will be extending the number line! We will explore the world of integers and rational numbers. What this means is we will be talking about negative and positive numbers and what these can represent in realworld situations, such as elevation or temperature. We will be using robotics to simulate a number line, helping us conceptualize the idea of absolute value and the location of integers. Not only will be extending the number line to the left, we will be taking a deeper dive into the numbers inbetween integers; fractions! As a class we will explore the equivalences between fractions and decimals and see how they both are used to solve problems and represent quantities. These concepts will continue using the idea of equivalent ratios and will lead soon into percentages.
As for upcoming topics, sixth grade students are to be fluent in dividing, multiplying, subtracting, and adding decimals and fractions. These skills are vital to move on to algebra the rest of middle school math. A great resource to practice our skills in performing operations with decimals would be Mathletics. You can go to the section that says number system and find an activity relating to this and practice at home.
Robotics
In Robotics this month we will be continuing to explore different types of sensors, such as the light and gyro sensor. We will also begin little more complicated coding with the robots. We will learn how to properly use conditional statements to make the bot make decisions based on its environment. The next big challenge is to program the bot to turn on automatic lights, when it goes through a dark tunnel follow a black line around the room using the light sensors.
