Summer Math Workbook


Due to limited resources, students will need to print the required workbook at home.  

All answer keys are included in the following PDFs, unless otherwise noted.

​Background Information:

We’d like to provide some background information on our expectations for summer work in mathematics.  Like all other skills and talents, your skills in math can wane over extended breaks – especially over the summer.  According to an extensive research summary by Harris Cooper of Duke University, the average student loses at least a month's worth of learning over the summer.  How much kids forget varies by subject and social class.  Reading comprehension falls steeply for low-income students, but only slightly for wealthier kids.  Math skills go down even more sharply than reading during the relaxing days of summer, and the loss is about the same for rich and poor.

West emulates a spirit of excellence and academic rigor throughout the academic school year and we will continue this excellence into the summer months.  Our hope is for students to combat summer loss by maintaining their skill level during the eleven weeks of summer.  These workbooks will provide students the opportunity to practice over the summer to retain the skills mastered during the school year.  If each child puts in the necessary time to complete the workbook, math teachers can do less reviewing of previously taught concepts and provide instruction of more in-depth and rigorous higher level concepts. ​

Workbooks are not intended to be new content, but rather a review of skills and topics necessary for success in math in the next course.  All answers are included in the workbook.  Please set aside the answer key when your child brings home his or her packet.  Your child should spend about 20 minutes each day completing the problems.  After a few completed pages, have your child check his or her answers.  Fixing the problems he or she got wrong will help in solidifying the understanding of the concepts.  We encourage calculator use on problem-solving questions, but NOT on computation questions.

We will be asking your child to turn in the math packet to his or her math teacher when returning to West in August.  Credit will be given for completing the workbook.  WORK MUST BE SHOWN IN THE WORKBOOK TO RECEIVE CREDIT!​

Thanks for supporting excellence at West Middle School!
