I am pleased to tell you that we will be using a computer program called IXL Math this year. IXL is a comprehensive math review site with an unlimited number of practice questions in hundreds of skills—all of which are aligned to state standards. One of the best things about IXL is that your child can access it from home, so you have a chance to see your child's progress!
To get your child started on your home computer, please follow these easy steps:
- Go to www.IXL.com/signin/lcsd
- Enter your child's username and password and click Sign in. ** Username and Password should be written in your child's Agenda or Take-Home binder
- Go to Sixth-Grade Skills: Math
- Please see current skills to practice (on the Current Curricular Topics page of my website). These skills should be first priority.
In addition to making math practice more fun, IXL Math is designed to help your child learn at his or her own pace. The website is adaptive and will adjust to your child's demonstrated ability level. The site also saves all of your child's results, so you can monitor your child's progress anytime by clicking on the Reports at the top of the page.
Please encourage your son or daughter to use IXL Math daily! Here's to a year of working together to make math fun for your child!
Please refer to the "Current Curricular Topics" page for the specific IXL Math skills aligned with what students are currently learning and practicing in class, as well as a cumulative review of what they have studied so far.
