Welcome to the new 2016-2017 school year!
Mrs. Morris' 6th Grade Science and Math Class
WELCOME BACK TO STEWART!
Please check my website often as I will update it regularly. Both of your students' textbooks are
have been taught on how to
access them through Canvas. This is an
educational app. that is provided through the school district.
I write the daily activities on the board each day so the students can practice time management. The homework and test information are also posted. Please have conversations with your children about what they did in school today. I promise you "nothing" is not the answer.
Common Assessment Rubric for Correction Points:
Your student has the opportunity to earn back up to half of the points missed on the common
assessments. The students have rubric for correcting their tests glued in the front of each of their ISN notebooks. It is imperative that they follow the rubric and the due date. The corrections are always due one week after the test. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Here is an example of a perfect correction. Students have a choice to use their Google documents and share their corrections with me electronically or they may use a separate piece of paper.
Rubric: Test Corrections Procedure
- You have one week to complete test corrections. The week begins on the
day that your graded test is handed back to you.
- You may get help from your classmates, parents, or teacher (please make an appointment).
However, make sure you understand your errors enough to explain them clearly.
- You must do the following on a separate sheet of paper for each
incorrect questions or problem on the test.
- Number the problem/questions and rewrite it.
- Write at least two complete sentences explaining what your error was and
what you need to do to correct it, Write enough to prove
that you understand it now.
- Show all work to correct the problem or question and include the right answer.
- You can earn as much as half of the missed points back.
"I made a mistake with multiplication rules for integers in the expression. I should have remembered that two like signs make a positive. To fix this, I will use the two like signs makes a positive and two unlike signs makes a negative."
"My error was just a simple multiplication mistake. The formula for finding the density of an object is mass divided by volume. I was given the density and volume, so I needed to use the inverse operation to solve for the mass. It was a silly mistake because I didn't read carefully."

3/29/16 Test Correction
Question 1 – Zhi needs to draw an example of several true triangles. Look at
the angles for each set and determine which ones can form a true triangle.
- 25 55 100
- 110 35 35
- 74 48 58
- 90 50 36
- I, II and IV
- I and III
- II and IV
- I, II and III
Answered b., Correct answer = d.
I did the math on I. correctly to come up with 180 degrees (25 + 55+ 100=180) properly. I also did the math on III. correctly (74 + 48 +
58 = 180). When doing the math on II. I incorrectly came up with 210 degrees instead of 180. I multiplied the 3s instead of added them which resulted in a math error. So I picked b. instead of d.
Question 2 – Study the triangle below. A= 58 degrees C=27 degrees B=?
Which statement about ABC is NOT true?
- AB is the longest side because it is opposite the largest angle.
- ABC is an obtuse scalene triangle.
- AB is the shortest side because it is opposite the smallest angle.
- AB measures 95 degrees because the sum of the angles in a triangle is 180 degrees.
Answered C., Correct answer = A.
I knew the answer was either A. or C. because both of those answers
cannot be true. Each answer is talking about the same side. I picked C. because I was in a hurry and I saw the letter C. in the answer and got mixed up on the side they were talking about. The correct answer was A. because AB is NOT the longest side because it is opposite the smallest angle, not the largest angle.
