The Math Department would like to welcome everyone to the 2011-2012 school year! The Key to math success is daily review! Students should do math every day to fully understand the concepts. Working on homework the night it is assigned helps students practice the skills they are learning while the skills are fresh in their minds. Students can then use Resource to ask a question or work on more practice.
One fun way to keep your math skills sharp is to use Study Island. Once again we are providing this exciting program to all students to practice their skills. Students can log on to Study Island at school and from home. Visit the islands to practice for fun.
No longer is "I left my textbook at school" an excuse for not completing homework. Students can access their entire math textbook online! Your child should have their access code and password in their planner or in their math binder. If this is not the case, please contact your childs' teacher early on so that your student can set up an account. The on-line version of the book also includes practice problems and games.
Has your child asked you for help and you just don't remember how to do the math? "Google it" or "You Tube" it. There are videos out there of teachers, graduate students, high school students, and even middle school students teaching different mathematical concepts. Another option for our students is to look through the videos available at Khan Academy.
