 Getting Ready for Grade 7
Getting Ready for Grade 7
Welcome to 7th grade!
Your new math teachers are very excited to meet you this September!
To help you stay strong with your grade 6 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 will get a letter from Ms. Richard, the K12 Math program coordinator, explaining how you can access your iXL account this summer.
Before you get started, here are some helpful hints to keep you organized for your optional summer work:
 It’s always a great idea to keep your work in one location. So get a binder or a spiral bound notebook where you can write things down. Looking back on your problem solving later might be helpful to you. Even if you use iXL, sometimes you need to write things down to solve problems. If you have a lot of trouble in any specific area, your teacher can look at your work later to see where you might have made mistakes.
 Do your work in pencil so that you can erase, if necessary.
 Try doing the work without a calculator if you can. Practicing your math facts while you are problem solving will help you to build your computation skills.
 Don’t get frustrated. If you are stuck, just move on to the next problem. Maybe if you take a break, you’ll have a brainstorm :) And if you don’t, it’s ok. Your teacher will be happy to help you in the fall. Write down your questions so you remember to ask them later!
 Have fun! This work is not intended to be stressful for you. It’s just summer exercise for your mathbrain.
The important things we want you to focus on are:
Basic Skills and Fractions
Understanding Percentages
Word Problem with Percentages
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 krichard@aps1.net.
Thanks you!
