What is a Week by Week?

The Week by Week worksheets are put out out by North Carolina's Department of Instruction. All Week by Weeks are on grade level. They cover the objectives that will be on the 6th grade EOG. These worksheets are used to help teach students problem solving skills and review computational skills throughout the year. They are designed to challenge and encourage higher level thinking skills and students may find themselves frustrated from time to time. (initial here) :

When are Week by Week Worksheets due?
I will hand one out every Tuesday and it will be due the following Tuesday. Students have a week to complete the worksheet.

When will students work on the Week by Week?
Week by Weeks will be a daily part of the homework assignment, so please check throughout the week to see what is being accomplished. Students are also given warm-up time occasionally to work on these as well. If a student works on one or two problems a day,, this should not be overwhelming. (initial here) :

May students get help?
Students may ask for help. Students have from Tuesday until Friday to ask me for help if needed. I am trying to teach the students not to wait until the last minute. Therefore, I will not answer questions on Monday or Tuesday about the Week by Week that is due. If they ask you for help, please remember that I expect them to solve it on a 6th grade level. Many times we as adults tend to think too algebraically. Week by Week word problems can often be solved by guess and test or by drawing a picture. If you have a question about how to help, please encourage your student to ask me. This is another reason students should not wait until the last minute to work on the Week by Week. Also, give hints and lead your student through a problem. Please do not be do the problem for the student. (initial here) :

Encourage Your Student!
Week by Week word problems are seldom solved in one step. Students may stop after the first step or get frustrated and quit. Often they just write something down so they can do something more fun. It is up to me, as the teacher, and you, as the parent, to be cheerleaders for our students. It will be our encouagement that helps them succeed. Do not be alarmed to see low grades at first. The more your student sticks with the Week by Week the better they get at problem solving. You should see the grades come up if the student's effort is truly there. If you do not see an improvement, then we need to see what else can be done to help. (initial here) :

Where does my student show his/her work?
Week by Week Essential worksheets are given out on Tuesdays. Each worksheet will contain two weeks of materials, front and back. Links for the entire year are listed on my webpage. These links also include the answer keys; parents are encouraged to print these to use as a reference in assisting their students. Please note that students who give answers only will receive NO CREDIT. Students are to show all work on separate, loose-leaf notebook paper. It is required that they use Cornell format.

Why do I assign Week by Weeks?
The Week by Week Worksheets can sometimes be frustrating for the student, the teacher, and the parent/guardian. Many times the best learning comes out of challenge. These will be a challenge for students. However, I continue to assign these worksheets because I see the great effect it has on students' learning and retaining math skills that will be used later in their lives. (initial here) :

Week by WeeksOne of the great challenges math teachers have is teaching students how to problem solve. In the real world we are not just given a computational math problem, but a problem within a situation. One of the best tools to help students learn and practice problem solving is the Week by Week Worksheet.
