Level of Expectation:      100% accuracy
Instructional Method: * The teacher will demonstrate how to identify the transformation from a given
                      pre-image to its image using flips, turns and slide by using the overhead and
                      chalkboard (provide overhead trans. with examples).
                      * The teacher will demonstrate how to complete and provide needed materials to
                      complete the activities.

Enrichment Activity:      * Enrichment worksheets available
                          * Enrichment activities available, to be completed in tutoring at the computer lab.
Corrective Activity:     * Opportunity to correct homework assignments

Grade: 6      Math
Local Objective:    Understand measurable attributes of objects and the units, systems, and process of
                    measurement.
Learner Activity:      The students will identify and justify an angle as acute, obtuse, straight or right.
Assessment Activity: * The students will be assessed on their ability to identify and justify an angle as
                     acute, obtuse, straight or right based on completed assignments (textbook,
                     worksheets, test/quiz).
                     * The student will complete the activity "Sailing At an Angle" where they explore if
                     angles are less than, greater than, or equal to a right angle with the use of index
                     cards.
                     * The students will draw diagrams to illustrate right, obtuse, acute, and straight
                     angles. The students will illustrate angles made by the hands of a clock and classify
                     them, based on a given time.

Level of Expectation:       100% accuracy
Instructional Method: * The teacher will explain and illustrate how to classify an angle as acute, obtuse,
                      straight or right with the use of the chalkboard and overheads.
                      * The teacher will supply all materials needed to complete activities.
Enrichment Activity:      * Enrichment worksheets available
                          * Enrichment activities available, to be completed in tutoring at the computer lab.

Grade: 6      Math
Local Objective:    Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements.
Learner Activity:      The students will describe how to solve problems involving area or perimeter of polygons.
Assessment Activity: * The students will be assessed on their ability to describe how to solve problems
                     involving area or perimeter of polygons based on completed assignments (textbook,
                     worksheets, test/quiz).
                     * The students will complete the activity, "Watching the Side Lines" where they
                     practice finding the total length of the sides of a polygon.
                     * The students will complete the activity, "Is It Still the Same?" For this activity,
                     students compare different figures to a standard rectangle to develop the idea that
                     rearranging a figure does not change its area.
                     * The students will complete the project "Size Wise" where they explore how the area
                     of a triangle is half the area of a rectangle with the same base and height.

Level of Expectation:      100% accuracy
Instructional Method: * The teacher will explain and illustrate how to find perimeter and area of several
                      polygons with the use of the chalkboard and overhead.
