Incoming 6th grade students have the opportunity to take Introduction to Middle School Math Review course or the Math 6/7 Bridge course. To register, simply use the appropriate links below.

Introduction to Middle School Math Review - This class is designed to prepare 5th grade students for middle school mathematics. Classes will provide additional support to students who need to review the 5th grade Illinois Learning Standards in mathematics. There will also be opportunities for students desiring to be challenged. Topics covered will include fraction and decimal operations, proportions, and geometry. Homework will not be given for this class.

Math 6/7 Bridge (current 5th grade students will test into Math 7/8): TThis class will focus on digging deeper into the skills from Math 6/7. Topics covered will include fraction and decimal operations, ratios, proportions and geometry.  A final exam will be administered at the end of the course that students must pass in order to be recommended for Math 7/8.  Students can expect to receive homework for this class.

  • This year, the 6th Grade Math Placement Assessment will be administered to all 5th grade students in May. The results of this assessment will determine if your student will be placed in the Math 6/7 or Math 7/8 class. The matrix for the 6th Grade Math Placement Assessment is provided below. The 6th Grade Math Placement Assessment results will be shared with families during the summer. At the end of Trimester 1 of the 6th grade school year, Brooks and Julian will review each student’s 6th grade class assessment performance to determine if there is a need to change their math class placement for the start of Trimester 2.
