A Note From The Middle School...


Rising 9th Math Enrichment and Review


Dear Rising 9th grade parents, 


Math Placement and Summer Review


For students who took Algebra:  

Honors Geometry placement has already been communicated through a written letter mailed to parents and students. If you did not receive this communication, it means that your child has been recommended for the regular Geometry program. If you have any questions, please contact me directly.


For students who took math 8:

If your child has asked to prepare this summer for placement in Geometry, please be sure you make me aware of this interest so that I can speak with you more about this decision.  Placement exams for Geometry will be administered during the last week of August. Marika Knight , Chair of Math Dept (Marika_kinght@fa.org) will need to be informed of your child's interest in sitting for a placement. She will then give you specifics about the date and time.


We recommend all students do some math over the summer to allow them to be more prepared for the 9th grade program.  


Students could do a math packet- Rising 9th grade Algebra Review .

Students could do Khan Academy  an on-line program to review and enrich their math understanding.

On Khan Academy, Mrs. Nolan has assigned units of study that correspond to what was covered during the academic year. If your student did not meet any of the standards during the school year (as evidenced by their results on all assessments recently returned), this would be a great way to target a review on those topics of study.
