Thus far, we have looked many of the summer classes Oxford Tutoring will be offering. So far, we have learned about College Prep courses, Enrichment courses, and Science and Tech Courses. All of which Oxford Tutoring is offering to review some of the necessary skills from the previous year, while most importantly helping students prepare for the next school year.
But what would any summer program be without math? Let’s learn more about Oxford Tutoring’s wide variety of math summer courses, designed to set up students for success in the upcoming school year.
Math Summer Courses at Oxford Tutoring
1st Grade Math
Students in this summer course used addition and subtraction with numbers 1-20 to solve word problems involving adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing unknowns.
2nd Grade Math
During this summer class, students will add and subtract with numbers up to 1000, using concrete diagrams and place value strategies.
3rd Grade Math
Students will multiply and divide numbers up to 100 in this summer course. Additionally, the will solve more advanced word problems involving equal groups, arrays, and measurements.
4th Grade Math
While taking this summer course, students review operations with whole numbers and
find factor pairs for number 1-100. They also learn that whole numbers are multiples of their factors, and how they relate to fractions.
5th Grade Math
In this summer class, students add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions and decimals to hundredths, using concrete models and place value strategies.
6th Grade Math
Students will learn the concepts of ratios and unit rates, and use rate language in the
context of a proportional relationship while taking this summer course.
7th Grade Math (Pre-Algebra Concepts)
While taking this summer course, students use the Order of Operations to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.
8th Grade Math (Algebra Concepts)
Students will expand understanding of equations and inequalities, while learning that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. Also in this summer class, they will learn how to graph a function, and what a problem’s answer means.
In this summer course, students will prepare for the first semester of Algebra 1 and begin tackling some of the most challenging concepts of the second semester including order of operations, simplifying algebraic expressions, solving algebraic equations, and graphing linear equations.
Students will begin by learning more about the first semester of Geometry while also preparing for second semester challenges. During this summer class, teaching will include conditional statements and proofs, parallel lines, properties of different triangles and polygons, and 3D figures.
Algebra 2 with Trigonometry
While taking this summer course, students will learn first semester concepts of Algebra 2, while beginning to understand the most complicated aspects of the second semester. This will include properties of different parent functions (linear, quadratic, cubic, square root, etc) and their properties, as well as polynomials and their operations.
In this Pre-Calculus summer class, students will start by mastering the first semester and start working on the second semester. Concepts like the properties and graphs of functions, properties of polynomials, properties of exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometric functions, partial fractions, vectors, and properties of conics will be taught.
Integrated Math 1
Designed for IUSD 9th graders in this summer course, students learn students focus on modeling and solving equations and inequalities, understand functions and their properties, model patterns and sequences, and categorical data.
Integrated Math 2
This summer class is designed for IUSD 10th graders in which students will explore quadratic functions, complex numbers, counting principles, and trigonometry.
Integrated Math 3
Designed for IUSD 11th graders, in this summer course, students will learn advanced strategies to work with many types of functions, statistics, and advanced trigonometry.
During this summer class, Students study the first semester of AP Calculus AB, specifically limits, derivatives and their rules, related rates, and curve sketching.
Students study the first semester of AP Statistics while taking this summer course, specifically descriptive statistics, normal distribution, linear regression, and probability.
All of our summer math courses provide some review of skills from prior levels but focus on concepts for the next year. Emphasis upon essential Common Core Standards and understanding mathematics through modeling, drawing and articulation of challenging problems that require multi-step problem solving.
Session one begins June 20th and Session two begins July 18th.
