Middle School Summer Math

Summer math work is not required, but it is encouraged in order to keep skills fresh and to be ready to enter 6th, 7th, or 8th grade math. Having a strong number sense is key as you move into math courses that become more abstract and incorporate more algebraic application. Sites like Khan Academy (free: www.khanacademy.org), IXL (some free practice: www.ixl.com), and Quizzizz (free: https://quizizz.com/) are great to use at home. Virtual Nerd (www.virtualnerd.com) is a site containing how-to videos if you need a reminder on how to work through a particular concept. As another option, students can revisit math work done throughout the previous school year; retrying previous assessments or assignments is a great way to do this. Interested in challenge problems? Mathcounts offers access to challenging problems complete with solutions (free: https://www.mathcounts.org/resources/problem-archive).

Below are recommended summer workbooks which can be purchased through Amazon or other textbook sites. These workbooks may cover additional material, so pick and choose the topics that are right for your student to review. Use a workbook’s ISBN number to find it online. These are not the only options for summer work. Families should find materials that work best for their child.
