ST Math Summer Bridge objectives are a set of objectives for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. They are designed for students to play during the summer to have a 'best of’ experience of ST Math. Our goal is to provide a review of the core concepts and preview the upcoming topics in order to reinforce the core understanding and minimize learning loss over the summer.

**Summer Bridge Grade 6**

Games included:

- Build a Monster – Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve. problems
- Number line Exponents – Evaluate numerical expressions involving whole- number exponents
- Wall Factory – Identify the mathematical structure of an expression
- Solving One-Step Equations – Solve mathematical problems of the form x + p = q

and px = q - Decimal Multiplication and Division – Build conceptual understanding of

multiplication and division with decimals

**Summer Bridge Grade 7**

Games included:

- Frac Wall – Build conceptual understanding of problems of the form px + q = r

Solving Two-Step Equations – Solve problems of the form px + q = r where p,q,

and r are specific rational numbers, including negatives and fractions - Linear Balloons Match Equation – Represent linear equations using lines on the

coordinate - Linear Transform Table – Solve functions of the form px + q = r
- Percent Solve Multi-Step – Solve multi-step mathematical problems posed with

rational numbers in any form (including fraction, decimal, and percent)

**Summer Bridge Grade 8**

Games included:

- Variable Stacks – Solve Linear Equations with unknown on both sides of the

equation - Linear Transform Table – Construct a function to model a linear relationship

between two quantities - Linear Balloons – Represent linear functions using lines on the coordinate plan

and equations - Variable Stacks Multiple Variables – Solve Linear Equations
- Polynomial Fill – Factor a quadratic expression
