Summer Math 2022

Helping Your Child Prevent the Summer Slide in Math

There are many ways families can support their children’s growth and development in mathematics both over the summer and throughout the school year.

Math is all around us. Finding fun ways to incorporate math in everyday activities is easy and helps kids see the importance of the skills they are learning in the classroom. For younger children, identifying numbers on signs in the store, counting items, and keeping score during a game are simple activities that can help maintain their skills.  For older students, focus on measurements, fractions, and ratios when cooking. Try halving or doubling a recipe, and assist kids in figuring out the new proportions. When shopping, help kids calculate change or discounts. When watching a baseball game, talk about what players’ statistics mean. 

This summer, in addition to these real-world opportunities to incorporate math, we are encouraging students to take advantage of the IXL online learning platform that students have been using throughout the school year.  Students will have access to IXL.com throughout the summer.  It is adaptive to individual student abilities, reinforces learning, and helps students retain knowledge.

Students can continue to log in using the Username and Password they have been using all year.  It is highly recommended that students spend 15 minutes a day practicing their math skills.
