Algebra Readiness strengthens students’ understanding of fundamental math and algebraic concepts to provide a solid foundation for success in Algebra 1.
The Algebra Readiness Summer Bridge Program is all about students: students learning math, growing in problem-solving and critical-thinking abilities, having fun, growing in confidence about their math abilities, and participating in a positive learning environment. Algebra Readiness is a program of intensive math content and support activities, which teach eighth-grade and algebraic concepts in order to prepare students for Algebra 1. It can also be used to strengthen students’ knowledge and skills prior to, or after, the eighth-grade math classes. The program also incorporates strategies to help English language learner (ELL) students accelerate the development of academic English skills that they need to succeed in math courses.
Math for 7th Grade
The content focus areas include rational number operations and concepts, algebraic expressions and equations, proportionality, and measurement.
The Math for 7th Grade Summer Bridge Program provides students with fun and engaging opportunities to learn math and grow in their problem-solving and critical-thinking abilities. This exciting program builds student confidence in math through participation in a positive learning environment. Math for 7th Grade is a program of intensive math content and support activities that teach seventh-grade concepts to prepare students for seventh-grade advanced math courses. It can also be used to strengthen students’ knowledge and skills prior to, or after, the seventh-grade math classes. The program also incorporates strategies to help English language learner (ELL) students accelerate the development of academic English skills that they need to succeed in math courses.
Mission Possible (Middle School Science)
Mission Possible engages students in hands-on science to develop critical thinking and scientific problem-solving skills, and to make science fun!
Students track a dangerous scientist around the world to prevent his release of a deadly microorganism. On their virtual journey, they perform scientific investigations in biology, chemistry, physics, environmental science, and math that relate to the geographic areas where they follow the scientist.
ProPhone and the Environment
This project-based learning opportunity offers students inquiry-based activities and investigations in environmental science, biology, and math to solve a real-world problem.
Focus areas include student investigations in experimental design and analysis, soil and water testing, topographical maps, biodiversity, population growth, data collection, and mathematical analysis. The project culminates in student presentations to a panel of judges.
