Math by Mail: Middle School
Youth / Academic Enrichment / Middle School Academic Enrichment -
It’s Back! Keep young minds active with the locally developed Math-By-Mail curriculum: Math practice accompanied by enrichment activities for the upcoming summer months. Created by current middle school math teachers with 45+ years of combined experience! Minnesota State Standards, Math Frameworks MCA strands, and current Minnesota Benchmarks are the foundational basis for this curriculum. With creative problem solving, multiple choice, short answer and vocabulary embedded into an 8-week course of independent study, students will maintain or increase the level of their math understanding, in addition to reviewing the recommended targets suggested by grade level in the Minnesota School Academic Standards for mathematics. Each student will be given a pretest to assess the appropriate skill level necessary to strengthen their individual math needs, unlike other programs that are exclusively grade level driven.
Students will receive an 8-lesson packet to complete at their own pace throughout the summer. As students finish packets, they are mailed back for feedback and then returned to the students. All packets are due back by August 11 in order to provide timely feedback before the 2021 school year begins.
