Middle School Math Summer Coursework Overview

It’s summertime...woo-hoo! I know how much we love to kick back and relax for 10 weeks. But...

  1. Research conclusively demonstrates that too much time away from learning and mental stimulation is quite detrimental to students. It leads to stagnation, regression, and some major frustration in August—especially in math where the saying “use it or lose it” is particularly true.
  2. The first two chapters and various sections throughout each book review basic concepts. It is critical that we cover this material quickly and move on to the “meat” of the course.

The good news is that we can stop the so-called “summer slide”. How do we do this? It’s simple – we provide an opportunity for students to practice their math skills during the summer months. All 6th-, 7th- and 8th-grade students are encouraged to complete Summer Coursework that corresponds to the math class they are entering in fall of 2018.

Solutions to each packet have been provided as well.  After a solid attempt to complete the problems, please check your work against the answers. Incorrect work indicates a need for further practice.  If you get stuck and are unsure about an answer/solution, you should look online for some help. A quick search of “integer operations” or “how to use point-slope form” will return a number of instructional resources and videos. We like Khan Academy, or PatrickJMT.

Please click on the link corresponding to the course you are entering this fall. Your goal is not to complete “busy work” or to memorize processes, but to truly understand and be able to apply the concepts.  Your ability to do this will be assessed within the first 1-2 weeks of school and will be your first test score in the gradebook.
