Summer Math Mini-Sessions

Tutoring with Delaney is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a math intervention program for the summer of 2017. This program will be open to students entering grades 4-Algebra I to reinforce the skills introduced per each grade level. Research has shown that students have a greater tendency to forget the skills needed in mathematics more than those needed for reading and grammar*. It is the intention of the program to provide the opportunities students need to retain the information year to year for success in mathematics.

During each two week mini-session, your child will receive assistance mastering content from the previous grade, or a jumpstart on next year’s material! Classes are held Monday-Friday for two weeks and are separated by grade levels.

Space is limited to five (5) students per session. Book before May 1 to receive $25 refund at Choose “book class” from the left menu, then select the Monday that starts the session(s) based on the child’s current grade level and mastery of content.

General Information:

Each session will be facilitated by a certified educator who will be providing instruction using hands-on manipulatives, cooperative learning, and handouts in a small group setting.

All manipulatives and handouts will be provided. Students will need to supply their own pencils, single subject notebooks, and standard calculators (calculators use is optional and there is no need for graphing calculators).
It is requested that students bring a copy of their final report card on the first day to ensure they are enrolled in the correct level.

Although the specific content will vary by grade level, the following schedule will be used for grades 4-preAlgebra:

Monday- Measurement (metric, US customary, time, temperature, dimensional analysis)
Tuesday- Translating (words → symbols, literacy focus)
Wednesday- Word Problems (strategies, using formulas, problem-solving in a real-life context)
Thursday- Theory (number relations, patterns, integer and rational operations, PEMDAS)
Friday- Financial (discounts/markups, % of change, interest, comparison shopping)

Session Information:

4/5th Grade June 5-16 (9:00am-Noon)
This session is intended for students who have mastered 4th grade and would like to begin preparing for 5th grade math OR for students exiting 5th grade who would benefit from review before moving up to middle school.
-Place value system: prime v composite, factoring
-Operations involving whole numbers, decimals and fractions
-Order of Operations
-Measurement: appropriate units and conversions within the same system
-Estimation and Rounding
-Coordinate geometry
-Plane figures: lines, angles, and shapes (perimeter/circumference and area)

6/7th Grade June 5-16 (2:00-5:00pm)
This session is intended for students who have mastered 6th grade and would like to begin preparing for 7th grade math OR for students exiting 7th grade who would benefit from reviewing the skills and standards before moving on to pre-Algebra.
-Operations with whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, PEMDAS
-Distributive property
-Ratios, rates, percents
