Math for 5th and 6th Grade

Hello everyone, and welcome to Mr. Moe's Math classes. 

 

     

     This is my third year teaching at PCLC, and I am excited about the positive things that we do to help our students learn and grow into amazing adults. I am a lifelong learner who is passionate about helping others to become better teachers, and better learners. My goal as a teacher is to pass along the knowledge, methods, and enthusiasm that have been bestowed upon me by others. I began my career in education as a Special Education Pareducator, which allowed me to learn and implement a broad range of interventions and teaching methodoligies. I carried that experience with me as I became a licensed teacher. My experiences with professional development and classroom instruction have allowed me to continually improve so that I can have a positive impact on how students are educated. 

     My family and I are originally from Oregon, where we learned to enjoy the outdoors and to appreciate how everything is connected. All of us are dependent on the caring and kindness of others. I try to make sure that I am caring for every student in order to help them all be able to achieve their goals, and become capable adults who will positively impact their community. 

     My teaching career began in western Kansas 18 years ago, where I was fortunate enough to live in a community of immigrants. The majority of the families that I served were Hispanic, and came to the U.S. in order to build better lives for their children. I also served a number of families from African nations and Southeast Asia who also came to the U.S. to build better and safer lives. I consider myself fortunate to have been able to learn about so many different cultures, and look forward to learning about your families, and more about the history of Cincinnati.

Assignments for the Week of 12/6/2021

We have a busy week ahead. both grades will be using the skills that they have learned so-far to solve real-world problems, and apply new-to-them models of calculation. 
 
5th Grade Learning Target:
 
Students will explore multiplication by using area models. 
 
I can fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
 
6th Grade Learning Target:
 
I can estimate using percents.
 
I can use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.
 
I can find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.
 
 
 

Assignments for the Week of 11/29/2011

Welcome back from break! We will be revisiting the lessons from last week and continuing our practice with factoring (5th Grade) and converting fractions, rates, and percents (6th Grade)
 
5th Grade Learning Target:
 
Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole number exponents to denote powers of 10.
 
 
6th Grade Learning Target:
 
I can find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100, e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity; solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.Assignments 

Assignments for the Week of 11/22/2021

Thanksgiving Break is nearly upon us, and we have made a lot of progress! This week 5th grade will be connecting Prime Factoring of multi-digit numbers to Evaluating Exponents. 6th grade will be continuing to practice converting fractions to decimals and decimals to percents. Both grades will have a practice packet to take home over the break. 

 
 
5th Grade Learning Target:
 
Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole number exponents to denote powers of 10.
 
 
6th Grade Learning Target:

Assignments for the Week of 11/15/2021

This week 5th grade will be starting on Prime Factoring of multi-digit numbers. 6th grade will be continuing to work toward solving percent problems by exploring how percents can be written in different forms. 

 
 
5th Grade Learning Target:
 
Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole number exponents to denote powers of 10.

Assignments for the Week of 10/18/2021

If you did not get all of the work for this week you may click on the link for your grade level and view or print the assignments. If you do not have a printer you should write the problem on paper to complete the assignment. Be sure to show your work for any problem that requires a calculation. 
 
For this week you will be completing Out Packets 1-3
 
Take care and be safe, 
Mr. Moe
