Just heard that Virtual Nerd is offering Math Boot Camp.
From the source:
To help students avoid the “summer slide”, we are offering boot camps in: Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, and Algebra II. The five-week camps cost only $19! A pre-quiz will assess student’s knowledge, and weekly playlists will be assigned to help them attain a better understanding of the subject and build upon concept knowledge. Finally we wrap up with a quiz that assesses how far they have come! We hope you will share the good news. Get started today!
Sounds like a great idea!
I remember a math teacher telling me that, typically, the first third of a math textbook is review from the previous year, the middle third is new material, and the final third is material your usual student never gets to (it’s there for the math whizzes so they don’t run out of math before the school year ends).
Take a look at a math textbook with this in mind. They lose all that information over the summer?
Sounds like Virtual Nerd has come up with a solution to the problem.
