Math Nation has a feature called On-Ramp to Algebra 1 Some teachers have asked what they could do for students leaving Grade 7 Math Advanced or Grade 8 Pre-Algebra to ensure their students are ready for Algebra 1 or Algebra 1 Honors. This tool would be a perfect summer assignment! Please share the information with your students and parents as a resource to prevent the summer slide!

Math Websites

The topics listed are topics that students should currently have “mastered.”  Most students still struggle with fractions as they enter middle school.  If a student has difficulty adding and subtracting fractions normally, positive and negative fractions combined with algebraic equations can be truly daunting.  It is a sincere hope that students take advantage of this list of resources as they have been used by numerous students in the past and have helped!  Some sites are pretty basic, while others will build in difficulty and challenge the students.  In addition, a few of the sites have step-by-step instructions for the topic at hand.  (Many of these can also take you to a home page with even more topics!)
