Is Your In-coming 6th Grader Skipping Math Levels?  If so...

Please forward this message from the Secondary Mathematics Office to the families of incoming middle school students who are taking mathematics courses in 2017-18 and may have missed math content learned in a prerequisite course that the students are skipping. 

HCPSS has developed online acceleration courses in Canvas to help supplement some of the major content that might be missed when a student skips a course(s). Students can log into Canvas and join the acceleration course by visiting the associated link(s). Students should begin with module 1 of the course they are joining. The goal is for students to complete at least the first two modules before the start of the 2017-18 school year. Students will be able to continue working on the other modules afterward.
 
Additional student and family mathematics course support is available at the HCPSS Family Math Support Center – http://hcpssfamilymath.weebly.com
