Dear Parents and Guardians,
In preparation for the 2018-2019 school year, students entering sixth, seventh and eighth grade are required to complete a summer math review packet. Working on these problems over the summer helps maintain mastery achieved in fifth grade. This feedback is also helpful in providing information about your student to his or her new teacher. The topics in the assessment are matched with the Common Core standards and skills and concepts that are prerequisites for the sixth grade math program. Some of these concepts will be practiced or covered again during the school year.
The first pages of this packet are review note sheets that give definitions, key words, visual models and examples to help with the questions that follow. When completing the summer packet, we encourage students to use these review pages as well as any other resources they may choose. Students are required to show all work or calculations for each question in the space provided in the packet.
The completed packet is due the first day of school and will be factored into a homework grade in the first trimester. All packets will be available for download on the E. T. Richardson school website should an extra packet be needed.
We appreciate your support in encouraging students to do their best on this assignment and to look for the mathematics they see around them in daily life all summer! We wish you and your family a safe, happy and healthy summer!
