6-7th Grade Math
Teacher: Mr. Ozyarim
This course will focus on four critical areas: (1) developing an understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) developing an understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples.
Ratios and Proportional Relationships
Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
The Number System
Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers.
Expressions and Equations
Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations.
Draw, construct and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them. Solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area, and volume.
Statistics and Probability
Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population.
Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations.
Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
Model with mathematics.
Use appropriate tools strategically.
Attend to precision.
Look for and make use of structure.
The greatest reward is learning math that will be used in all aspects of life in your future.
1-Call, email, and/or letter home with positive accomplishment
2- Stars (see below)
3- Other surprises
How to Win Stars:
Students, who maintain an average of 93 or above during an entire month, will receive three stars. Three stars will buy a “homework pass”. Students may also receive stars by winning in-class Math competitions, doing an extraordinary job, and for being an outstanding student.
= homework pass
Stars are not transferable and can only be used for Mr. Ferhat’s Math class.
Homework pass will let you skip a daily homework assignment and get a 100.
Students will be given incentives from time to time based on their performances on practice tests in order to be roused, motivated, and encouraged. The incentives include but not limited to chocolate, pizza, and movie tickets.
Procedures are the steps that should be taken if we are willing to reach our goals.
1. Arrive to class prepared and on time.
2. Respect yourself and others. Refrain from using profanity or offensive language.
3. Remain quiet in your seat unless otherwise directed by your teacher.
4. Refrain from eating and/or drinking during class.
5. Raise your hand before speaking and wait to be called on.
6. Keep hands, feet, and other objects to yourself.
Pencils, erasers, and hole-punched graphed paper (Quad Ruled)
Calculator (graphing calculator)
3-ring binder ( to keep your notes, classwork, and handouts)
Students can make up tests or any other assignments, only in case of excused absences. When a student is absent it becomes his/her responsibility to obtain assignments they missed while absent. Decision on deadlines for makeup work (due to excused absence) will be given to individual situations. There will be 10 points off for each day of late homework assignment.

Tests are given at the end of every chapter. (multiple choice, completion and open ended questions.)
Quizzes are given in the middle of every chapter. (multiple choice, open ended, and completion questions)
