Happy summer from John Bapst! While we understand that summer is a time for vacations, recreation, and relaxation, research suggests that many students have trouble remembering important math concepts from spring to fall. It is important for your student to do some math over the summer so that he or she is ready to go on the first day of school in the fall.
Below you will find links to summer packets that reviews the math topics that will be important for your student to remember to be successful in his or her math class next year. This is for returning students (nonAP) and incoming 9th graders taking Honors level classes. We ask that your student spend some time over the summer completing this packet. This packet was created with time in mind; the packet should take a student, on average, 3 hours to complete.
This will also help your student’s teacher assess what your student understands at the start of the course. The teacher will review the packet in class and then there will be an assessment on Friday September 2, 2016 (an “S” day).
Please read the directions on the packet carefully.
Best wishes for the remainder of your summer,
The John Bapst Math Department
