Number Puzzle Homework Explanation for Parents

The goal of the number puzzle homework is to go through the 4 steps of problem-solving.  It is okay if your child NEVER solves this puzzle.  They will only be graded on their ability to go through the 4 steps.  The purpose of this assignment is for students to learn perseverance, and it’s okay if they don’t know how to do something as long as they try!

The 4 steps of problem-solving for this assignment are due on Monday.  Again, I want to really stress they will ONLY be graded on the 4 steps of problem-solving not on their ability to solve the puzzle.

Online Textbook

For 6th grade math classes, we have online textbooks through McGraw-Hill.  This is a great resource we utilize not only in Math but Social Studies as well.  On this website, your student will be able to access…

  • an online version of their textbook
  • watch tutorial videos for extra instruction
  • print out homework papers and extra practices
  • take short quizzes and assignments

Below you will find a link that will direct you to the website.  Once you have arrived at the website, your student will enter their user name and password and press enter.  This will be a great tool of reference and will help with keeping up with the curriculum and test preparation.  Please utilize this site as much as possible.


*Login information can be found on your students composition notebooks.  These will be placed in their notes hopefully within the first week of school.  Their username and password will be the same for both their Social Studies and Math classes.
