Glasgow Middle School will be hosting a virtual Algebra Boot Camp this summer (Glasgow Middle School’s Virtual Algebra Boot Camp) and this free program is for students enrolled in Algebra 1 or Algebra I Honors at Glasgow during the 2021-2022 school year.
The Algebra Boot Camp will help students transition from their current math class to Algebra 1 or Algebra 1 Honors, which is a high school credit course. Virginia mathematics course progression is Math 7 to Pre-Algebra to Algebra 1 or Math 6 AA to Math 7 Honors to Algebra 1 Honors. The Algebra Boot Camp is especially recommended for students who completed Math 7 or Math 6 AA this school year. Although participating in the Algebra Boot Camp is not required, it is highly recommended to ensure your child has the prerequisite skills necessary to be successful in Algebra 1 or Algebra 1 Honors. Students will be expected to know the topics covered in all math courses preceding Algebra 1.
Virtual modules will cover essential skills for Algebra readiness, including order of operations, expressions, equations, functions, and more. Students who register for Algebra Boot Camp will be invited to a Google Classroom on July 6. Students can work through the modules at their own pace and/or attend office hours for support. Virtual teacher office hours will be offered twice a week between July 6 - July 30. More details will be shared on the Google Classroom page. If you have any questions, please contact Shannon Gray or Therese Franco.
IMAGINE provides middle school students the opportunity to strengthen core Mathematics and English Language Arts skills by focusing on essential standards that will prepare students for success at the start of next school year.
