Review Math Skills Before School Begins

As summer comes to a close, it is a good time to take stock of where your child is in mathematics and what goals you want to tell his or her teacher for next year.

For younger students, this might mean reviewing some of the big concepts from last year (addition, fractions) and making sure that your child can still do them after the summer months.

For older students, you may want to review what classes he or she is eligible for next year, and whether your child is on track to meet the Michigan Merit Curriculum’s goals – four years of math credit, including Algebra II or an alternative career class that incorporates math.
