**Welcome to Mrs. Latimer's 6th grade math class!****You will work with many different concepts this year, such as order of operations, measurement, perimeter/area, integers, algebraic equations, graphing, and ratios, to name a few. We will also focus on math applications, so you will see and experience the relevancy of math in your daily lives.

Please feel free to stop by my room or check in with me during flex, if you have any questions!**## **Answer to Last Week's Brain Teaser**

The answer to last week's brain teaser is...Ask one of the men what the other man would answer to the question, "Is the door on the left the correct door?" Then, assume the answer you are given is false and act on the knowledge. If the man you ask is the liar, he'll incorrectly give you the truthful man's answer. If the man you ask is the truthful man, he'll correctly give you the liar's wrong answer.
