Here are some great practice problems that you can work on with your students with distance learning or a review to prepare them for 7th grade if and when school gets started again!
I made up questions based on the 10 most difficult questions from last year's Texas test.
I will model each and every one of these on my Come on Sense Math Club through Facebook in video form. Just type the words "Come one Sense Math" in Facebook as if you are looking for friends, and you will see my club. Click join, and as soon as I accept you, there will be hundreds of videos that I have already posted from different grade levels that you will have access to at any time!
Videos modeling the questions below will be uploaded to my YouTube page first so that your students can watch as I model how to do the problem AFTER they have attempted to work them out on their own first. Once you get to the YouTube page, click on the three horizontal dots to the right. You can then click copy link and be able to send the link to your students or their parents by email or even text.
