Hello, and welcome to Accelerated Math. I am the 5th grade accelerated math teacher as well as one of the elementary gifted coordinators. Math has always been my favorite subject, and I love teaching it first thing every morning. I hope to provide challenging and meaningful experiences to all of my students this year.
I will update the "Unit Standards and Assignments" page at the beginning of each unit. I will include unit standards, graded assignment due dates, quiz/test dates, and class cancellations due to special programming. I rarely give homework, but on the occasion that I do, I will post it there as well. Students will have homework if classroom work was not completed each day as expected. Throughout each unit, students will work at his/her own pace at the level appropriate for him/her. I pretest at the beginning of the year, and flex group based on strength and need. Some students may be working individually or with a partner to complete an enrichment project while others are meeting with me in small group to master a skill. These groups may change weekly or by unit.
Remember to check out the online textbook at my.hrw.com for extra practice, video tutorials and more. There is also a link for my Delicious site on the sidebar. "Mrs. Lynn's Delicious Site" contains links to math games, skill review, tutorials, videos and more.
