2017 Summer Math Work for Rising Grades 6-12

According to recent research by the Rand Corporation, students lose on average one month of knowledge and skills over the course of a summer, beginning each school year a month behind where they ended the previous year. Unfortunately, these losses are cumulative, adding up from year to year. The math department assigns summer work in an effort to give students an opportunity to maintain skills over the break. The work is not a lesson, and students should find the material to be a review. The skills practiced over the summer are considered vital to success in the upcoming course. By offering the math work mid-summer, students will be reviewing the necessary material closer to the beginning of the following school year, ensuring familiarity with those concepts.

Note: math assignments are published on this page in early July in anticipation of MyMathLab being available for purchase through the MBS Bookstore on or around July 10, in coordination with student schedules being finalized and communicated. The work is due on the first full day of classes and will be counted as the first grade of the fall semester. If you have questions, contact the appropriate teacher listed below or Math Department Chair Page McMullen.
