New SUMMER Middle School Math Course

Summer Accelerated Math Support (SAMS) has been developed for summer school 2016. Utilizing the UC Math Diagnostic Test to guide targeted instruction for prospective acceleration and targeted intervention, students will experience a blend of classroom instruction and self-paced online learning with APEX Common Core Math Tutorials. Instruction will be targeted to each student as identified by test results. This class is a good opportunity for any student needing targeted intervention. Students who were not initially recommended for acceleration but successfully participate in SAMS this summer will be re-evaluated for 2016-2017 math placement. SAMS is our first “flexible- drop-in” attendance middle school summer course. All middle school summer courses will be held at both Lincoln Middle School and Malibu High School. For more information please contact your middle school principal or Dr. Edeburn, Secondary Director.
