Numeracy skills are so important and I think the current Ontario curriculum for math doesn't emphasize them enough. Students who can add, subtract, multiply and divide quickly are at an immediate advantage to those who don't have that skill laid out as part of their mathematics foundation. When I was younger, I used to do math drills on various topics as part of a math program I was enrolled in, and which I use with many of the students I tutor. Sharing my own printable version with you today!
I've created this math review package for grade 8 students entering high school.

Work through this with your tutee or child during… Continue reading organization || Grade 8 Math Summer Review Package

It's a big post though, so bear with me as I try to find the time for it.) As for the notes and all the course material itself, I've got a simple method to keep everything organized in their binders!
In any subject, staying organized is a critical to ensure success! When studying math especially, it's extremely important to stay up to date with homework. Practicing regularly makes a big difference - you gain the skills, exposure and confidence to do well on any test or competition question you are faced with!
