Summer Math Initiative
The Irving Summer Math Incentive was reinstated 2 years ago. It was recreated to be fully accessible online, thus eliminating the need to keep track of papers and packets over the summer. The purpose of this program is to give students an opportunity to practice and master math skills they've learned in the past school year. Activities and corresponding quizzes can all be found online on our Summer Math Incentive Blog! Students are expected to complete 6 activities and 6 quizzes over the summer. The activities include work within 5 subsets of math: Number Sense, Geometry, Algebra, Measurement, and Operations. The program is optional. Students who complete the program are celebrated at the start of the following school year with a "Splash Party!" In the past two years, our committee has doubled the number of participants from the previous years.
