Dear Mathematicians and Parents,
To keep minds mathematically fit, students should practice some real world math this summer, spend some fun time on math websites, and try a few worksheets (located under the FILES & MATERIALS tab) maybe closer to the start of the new school year.
Real world experience with math can be incorporated into your summer life, especially when it comes to money. SHPA student, you should be the one in charge of figuring out tips at restaurants, or setting a budget when planning an outing, or doing the grocery shopping and handling the coupons and money!
To help guide your practice this summer I have highlighted a few of the skills that we worked on this year in Transitions math class.
- Students should also feel comfortable converting between fractions, decimals, and percents.
- Students should be familiar with the Order of Operations, and be able to apply the four operations (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing) to decimals, fractions, mixed numbers and integers (positive and negative numbers).
Also, your IXL account should be active throughout the summer. Try to master all the skills that you didn’t over this past year and maybe try some from the next grade level!
