Help set up your child for success next school year! In this class, students will receive a review of the fundamental material of their previous year’s math class, with a focus on topics likely covered during online distance learning. Foundational middle school math topics serve as the building block concepts for the rest of a student’s math career! Checkpoint assessments will be administered throughout the course to receive feedback and ensure mastery of the weekly material. Homework problems to be performed outside of class.

Sample topics:

  • Rising 6th graders: Fractions, place value, operations with multi-digit whole numbers and decimals, converting measurements, graphing points on coordinate planes
  • Rising 7th graders: Ratios, fractions, evaluating expressions, equations and inequalities
