Math summer reviews are now available on the APS website at https://www.apsva.us/mathematics/summer-reviews/. Answer keys will be posted at the same location by the end of June. Please select the summer math review for the grade/course that your child completed during the 2019-2020 school year. The summer reviews are designed to allow students to review SOL content for a particular grade/course level. Successful completion of these summer reviews does not by itself indicate that a child has mastered the content for that particular grade/course level.
If you have questions about anything math related at Swanson please email Laura Partridge, Swanson’s math coach, at Laura.Partridge@apsva.us. As it is summer, expect that responses will be somewhat delayed, but typically you’ll hear back within a week.
