General description of each class

MATH ENRICHMENT: Students who will be in Algebra I will have the opportunity to practice math concepts in the Math Enrichment Course.  In addition to strengthening the student’s mathematical foundation and building confidence in math, this course allows freshmen to meet future classmates and become familiar with SPX.  General math concepts such integers, fractions and decimals, simplifying and evaluating expressions, and solving equations will be presented and practiced using a variety of activities in a relaxed atmosphere.

 

GEOMETRY JUMP START: Students who will be in Geometry will have the opportunity to learn geometry study techniques in the Geometry Jump Start course.   The course will teach students how to learn and apply the many definitions, theorems and postulates in order to be successful. Additionally, we will review the algebra topics that will be covered in the initial chapters of geometry.

 

ALGEBRA REFRESHER: The Algebra Refresher class is for students who just completed Geometry and will be in Algebra II in the fall designed to review important concepts learned in Algebra One to help students transition into Algebra Two. Even though there is Algebra in Geometry, many students have a hard time remembering the concepts and the procedures of Algebra One at the pace of the Algebra Two course. This summer review course is extremely beneficial because it will allow students to not stress over relearning old material but concentrate solely on new information.
