2.1) Understanding
integers.

2.2) Representing
rational numbers on the number line.

2.3) Identifying
the absolute values of rational numbers.

2.4) Representing
rational numbers on the coordinate plane.

2.5) Finding
distances on the coordinate plane.

2.6) Representing
polygons on the coordinate plane.

We use workbooks, Khan Academy, Explore Learning, online
textbooks, Quizlet, and many other resources to practice these six skills. I have included links to many of the
resources below. Topic 2 quizzes and
tests are scheduled and posted on my math website at www.mrhartwell.blogspot.com. All students should be practicing math at
home for at least 15 minutes each evening; regular practice over a long period
of time is a great way to push skills into long-term memory!

More good news!
For the first time, we are taking a group of 6th graders to a
county-wide Academic Challenge tournament.
I hold practice sessions starting next week during the school day on
Tuesday and Thursday. Any student is
welcome to come practice. In October, I
will use a timed short answer test to determine the 10 final participants. You can find more information on a new
website (it is under construction and subject to change) at: http://hartwellprojects.blogspot.com/
