### Khan Academy

Khan Academy is an online learning resource available to students, parents, and teachers at JLS. Parents may sign up as "coaches" for their child. Teachers may also sign up as "coaches" (students can have more than one coach.)

### 6th Grade

#### Math 6

All students study the mathematical strands recommended by the California Framework: Number, Measurement, Geometry, Patterns and Functions, Statistics and Probability, Logic and Language, and Algebra. Focus is placed on problem solving, conceptual understanding, building connections throughout the strands, and developing computational skills. Students solve problems, communicate ideas in both oral and written form, analyze and organize information, evaluate alternative mathematical approaches, and interpret results. Students use mental math, estimation, paper and pencil computation, manipulatives, calculators, computers, and other technology as appropriate. Students are heterogeneously grouped in sixth grade and work both independently and in cooperative group situations. Instruction is differentiated to appropriately challenge students. Extra challenge and enrichment opportunities are available to all students. The curricular materials for math include The Connected Mathematics Series (published by Pearson Prentice Hall) and Concepts and Skills Course 1 (published by McDougal Littell)
