Getting Ready for Grade 8
Welcome to 8th grade!
Your new math teachers are very excited to meet you this September!
To help you stay strong with your grade 7 math skills, we’ve put together a list of optional summer practice work. Anything from 5 minutes per day to 30 minutes per week is helpful in keeping you current with the math you learned in school this year.
This skills practice is a mix of worksheets that you can print at home or online skills practice using IXL. You should continue to use Classlink to access your IXL account just like you did in school this year. If you have trouble with your login please contact Ms. Richard, email at the bottom of this letter. Work completed using IXL will be visible to your teacher in the fall.Here are the links to your playlists which contain instructions and practice work:
- Playlist #1: Expressions: evaluating, combining like terms
- Playlist #2: Expanding and Factoring Expressions: distributive property, greatest common factor
- Playlist #3: Solving Equations and Equations Challenge
- Playlist #4: Graphing Practice
You can access the practice materials by clicking the links (or copying them to your browser). You will NOT need to submit work to your teacher, but you should definitely put it into your binder (or do it in your spiral bound notebook). Each playlist focuses on a different set of practice skills. You may skip around, mix and match, combine printed work with IXL skills or Khan Academy. Have fun with the work! If you have any questions please contact Ms. Richard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
