Students in 6th grade are on the verge of complex mathematical concepts. Wixie provides tools they can use to visualize complex procedures and explain their mathematical thinking.

Wixie's Curriculum library includes a range of math-focused templates you can use for formative assessment purposes or to support student thinking as they tackle complex math tasks in your classroom. Wixie's Template library contains double-number lines, histograms, coordinate planes, and more.

Teachers can assign Wixie activities directly to students, or customize to differentiate them for specific learners in their classroom. Written and voice instructions for students show in the Wixie interface. You can also ask students to record their voice to explain their mathematical thinking.

Students in 5th grade are deepening their understanding of place value, fractions, and decimals, as well as building fluency with operations and expressions and the coordinate plane.

Wixie's Curriculum library includes a range of math-focused templates you can use for formative assessment purposes or to support student thinking as they tackle complex math tasks in your classroom.

Teachers can assign Wixie activities directly to students, or customize any template to differentiate them for specific learners in their classroom. Instructions, both written and recorded, also show in Wixie for each template. You can also ask students to record their voice to explain their mathematical thinking.
