Team 6B

To encourage a lifelong love of learning, the ability to think independently, and the desire to develop high, achievable goals for success. To become confident, compassionate, and contributing members of society.

Curriculum

ILA

Two periods per day are devoted to the integrated teaching of reading and writing (ILA). Students read, write, view and respond to a variety of texts and videos to construct meaning. Emphasis is placed on writing and speaking English correctly in order to communicate clearly and appropriately. These skills are evaluated through written output and oral and visual presentations.

MATH

  • Number System – operations with whole numbers, decimals, fractions and integers; greatest common factor and lowest common multiple; place value; estimation and rounding; problem solving and reasoning; exponents and order of operations.
  • Ratios and Proportions – writing ratios; finding equal ratios; solving proportions; using scale drawings in real-world scenarios; problem solving and reasoning.
  • Geometry - basic geometric concepts and shapes; three-dimensional figures; perimeter, formulas for area, surface area and volume; circles; the coordinate plane; real-world connections; problem-solving and reasoning.
  • Algebra – reading and writing algebraic expressions; writing and solving algebraic equations; function tables; real-world scenarios; problem-solving and reasoning.
  • Statistics and Probability – collecting, organizing and interpreting data; calculating mean, median, mode, and range; interpreting and creating graphs including stem-and-leaf, dot plot, line plot, box-and-whisker plot, bar, line and circle graphs; recognizing and interpreting misleading graphs; basic sampling (random versus biased); problem-solving and reasoning.
  • Math Review – daily practice of previous and future mathematical concepts to encourage justification and reasoning behind students’ answers. Students’ self-reflections identify and interpret mistakes.

SCIENCE

The goal is to develop students who are observant and responsible in an increasingly complex world. Throughout the year, students will engage in scientific inquiry and thinking to make sense of the world around them. Performance tasks will allow students to foster creativity and increase perseverance in planning and problem-solving. Students will also develop scientific literacy, numeracy and technology skills in science classrooms.
