Summer Math

The skills you have learned in math, and will continue to explore in the future, will benefit you no matter what you choose to be in life. Throughout the summer, we encourage you to notice math in the world around you and to continue to take on challenges. Whether you are doing things like counting money, calculating distances, measuring ingredients for a recipe, or keeping track of sports statistics, everyday activities bring math to life.

This summer we are providing a variety of different optional math enrichment activities for students. See the links below: 

Connecticut Commissioner’s Summer Math Challenge: “A Journey through Mathematics.” Beginning June 17, families who take part in this activity will receive daily emails containing math-based activities. The program will continue through July 26. (See links below for additional information.)

Greg Tang Math Challenge. Students are familiar with Greg Tang math activities. Greg Tang Math is also offering a summer math challenge for students which incorporates math games and activities designed to keep skills fresh and help you use math in everyday life.

Grade Level Activity Calendars. Based on the grade you will enter in the fall, grade level calendars of activities are available in the "Math Resources" menu to the right. These activities are intended to complement the content and skills for math classes. Print off a copy of the July and August calendars included in the links, check off the activities you complete, and bring in the calendars to share with your teacher in the fall. Each attachment also includes book titles and websites that you can visit to play math games or practice mathematical concepts if you would like. 

When you return to school in the fall, you are encouraged to share any of the calendar activities, Commissioner’s Summer Math Challenge log or Greg Tang math game board with your teacher.
