## Summer Math Rising 9th Grade

SUMMER MATH REQUIREMENT

Welcome to STEM!

We are excited that you will be joining us in the fall and look forward to a great school year. In order for you to be best prepared to meet the challenges of your 9th grade math class, we ask that you complete  an online assignment that will allow you to review important math concepts taught in prior classes and a computational assignment that will help you brush up on the basic arithmetic skills needed to be most successful in your math class. The directions to access each assignment are below.
