TeachTransform’s Grade 6 Master Proportionality is all about connecting representations of proportional relationships. Activities include major scaffolding so algebraic reasoning becomes accessible to all students, not just the ones who are already reasoning abstractly.
Investigations, puzzling problems, zombies, and gross, but true, conversions keep students interested and develop problem solving grit. This isn’t your typical “take notes” kind of instruction. It’s instruction that teaches students to and requires them to reason and justify using academic discussion, collaboration, and writing.
Grade 6 Master Proportionality includes activities for the whole class, small groups, tutoring, and intervention that build the academic language of algebra.
Each activity includes:
- Setting Up for Instruction
- How-To Guide with full teacher directions including questions
- Thought Extender Questions to help students get ‘unstuck’ and focus on the math concepts
- Answer Key
- Content explanations to deepen teacher understanding of fraction concepts
- Instruction extras to support implementation of instructional strategies
Tutoring & Intervention
Grade 6 Master Proportionality activities can be used for Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 instruction in 6th grade. Use parts of activities to scaffold for struggling 7th graders. For example, use Wild Measurements for students who need help with conversions or Rate It: Fiona the Hippo for students who need help with constant rate of change.
Instructional Alignment from Grades 3–8
Not only is the content aligned among the grades, but the instructional strategies are too. For students who are “growing up” with TeachTransform’s instructional materials, you can expect them, with a little prompting, to give an answer that includes a why, to use sentences to explain their thinking, to question each other in small groups. This lightens the instructional and cognitive load in each grade and leads to mastery.
