Set a goal of 30 minutes per day, 3 – 4 times per week to practice and maintain your math skills. Choose activities from the different categories listed below.

I. Personalized Practice

  • Ascend Flashcard Math
    • Consider practicing a different operation each week, focusing on numbers with which you need the most help.
    • Document your scores and progress so that you know what you need to practice most!

II. Fluency/Skills Practice – These target College and Career Ready standards that you learned in Grade 7 that will help you in Grade 8. Fluency is “the ability to apply procedures accurately, efficiently, and flexibly; to transfer procedures to different problems and contexts; to build or modify procedures from other procedures; and to recognize when one strategy or procedure is more appropriate to apply than another”.

III. Literacy in Mathematics - Read with a grown up, a sibling, or a friend. These resources are fun and encompass mathematics skills learned in middle school.
