6th Grade Information

Please take time to read the letter from Kanawha County Schools and helpful hints from our own math teachers!

Screen Shot 2019-10-06 at 8.18.17 PMImagine math is broken into 5 categories: Pre-Quiz, Guided Learning, Problem Solving, Practice, and Post Quiz. Students pass the lessons by either passing (90% or higher) the pre-quiz or the post quiz. Most students will not pass the pre-quiz because they have not been exposed to the material yet. After the pre-quiz, the Guided Learning is where Imagine Math teaches the lesson.  Students need to watch the video and pay close attention to what the program is instructing instead of just clicking “next” when they miss a problem.  Problem solving is usually word problems that use the skill just learned in the Guided Learning section and the “Practice” are additional problems to make sure the skill has been learned.  The post quiz is to see if the skill has been mastered. Students have to receive a 90% or better to pass the lesson. Teacher help is availble dudring the guided learning, problem solving, and practice sections.    However, the important thing to remember is that the Live Teacher is only available duirng the “Guided Learning” section after they have exhausted their hints.  If they click through the hints quickly without trying the problem agian, the live teacher will not be available.  It is used as a last resort if the student cannot grasp the concept with the two to three embeded hints per problem.
