THIS SUMMER WE HAVE TWO OPTIONS FOR YOU, IXL OR PROBLEM SOLVING...ALL CAN BE FOUND ON GOOGLE CLASSROOM. READ BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS.
School is out for Summer 2019! School will be back in before you know it. We at Roxbury want to provide an opportunity for students to maintain their mathematics skills during the summer months. All the problems for the summer were designed to help any student continue to think about mathematics. Each problem will most likely take multiple attempts to answer correctly, but the correct answer is not the focus. It is the thinking that is the focus. Below, you will find a code for the corresponding Google Classroom to sign up with. If technology is an issue, please let your teacher know before you leave for the Summer and arrangements will be made accordingly. Each week a new assignment will be released through Google Classroom. This will occur each Monday morning at 8 AM. On Wednesday of each week, at 8 AM, a hint will be released to help anyone who is struggling. On Friday of each week at 3 PM, the answer will be released for students to check their own work. Each week will remain open so students can return to a prior week if necessary. If a student is struggling, they can ask for help from fellow classmates on Google Classroom which will be monitored by the Mathematics Supervisor, Mr. Fiscina. You can also email him directly (email@example.com) if you have any questions or need some guidance.
If you choose not to complete the problems on Google Classroom, another option will be to work on IXL. Each week, various standards will be suggested to work on for the week. You may complete any or all of the suggested standards, or choose others you would like to work on instead.
This assignment is completely voluntary and will NOT count towards your grade. The purpose and motivation for this assignment is for students to work on mathematics over the summer to become a better math student in the following school year. While this assignment will not count towards your grade, your completion of the assignment will benefit you for tests, quizzes, and other assessments in your new class.
