Summer Math Learning Packet For Students Entering Grade 7 Dear Westfield Families, It is important for all students to review math concepts and processes during the summer. Intentional practice of math skills will help students reach mastery of required material and increase their ability to use facts and operations easily and accurately (fluency). There may also be skill areas or knowledge that students need to strengthen (reinforce) or build upon further through enrichment opportunities. Time spent working on mastery, reinforcement and enrichment will greatly benefit all students. Together, North and South Middle Schools have created summer math calendars to help students continue to practice their math skills. Both schools have set up incentive systems to promote completion of the packets, which are not mandatory. Although these are setup to be used over two months, students can determine their own pacing. There is one problem per day for each of the weekdays during July and August, for a total of just over 40 items. We encourage students to put their answers on the blank calendars that accompany the packet. Should extra space be needed to work out computations, students may simply attach additional sheets of paper. Students should use the calendar for their UPCOMING grade. For example, students leaving Grade 6 and going into Grade 7 should use the “Entering 7th Grade Summer Math Calendar.” Students should bring their completed calendars back to school with them in September for a school-wide celebration of their work. Please turn in your calendar to your seventh grade math teacher by September 15th.
