6-8 Summer Math

6-8 Summer Math

Summer Math

Whether you relax, explore, or seek adventure over the summer, we encourage you to continue to see math in the world around you!  While there is no specific required summer math work for students entering grades 6-8, we have compiled a collection of activities that will help students practice existing skills and prepare for next year. Math teachers at TEMS have identified key skills from the IXL math program to solidify skills from the course you have just completed. These are not required assignments, but activities available to students who wish to brush up on their skills. Although the suggested items are review topics, you are welcome to explore any topics from other math classes if you wish. We have shared general topics to explore over the summer if you choose.

Commissioner Summer Math Challenge
Commissioner’s Summer Math Challenge

The Commissioner's Summer Math Challenge is available for students who have completed Grades 1-8. This free math skills maintenance program is aligned to grade level standards and is offered for students across the state of Connecticut. Beginning on Monday, June 18th and running through Friday, July 27th, students will receive a daily email with math activities to complete. (Even if you join the challenge after June 18th, these daily emails will provide activities to keep you engaged with math throughout the summer.) Students who choose to participate in this optional program will be able to print off a Summer Math Log and certificate to celebrate their accomplishments at the conclusion of the challenge and shared with your math teacher in the fall.
