Imagine Math (formerly known as TTM) is happy to announce...

an option to keep students engaged with math over the summer. Imagine Math’s Summer Pathway is a great way to help fill in gaps and review the concepts from the grade just completed. They are also designed to help prepare your student for the content and concepts they will learn next school year. This is a great way for students to remediate and to work on current math skills.


TX Summer Pathway: Entering SY17-18:

· Contains an average of 20-30 lessons,

· Reviews the major work students just completed,

· Includes a few lessons that are precursors to the content students will see next year.


Your Imagine Math (TTM) accounts are active throughout the summer until August 11. Make a plan today to utilize this great option to keep engaged and learning all summer long!

Math TUTORIALS

Looking for an outside tutor for ANY SUBJECT here is the district approved list LISDTutorList-May17.pdf. Parents can also find it on lisd.net by searching "tutor list" or at http://www.lisd.net/Page/1822. These are private tutors who set their own price per hour and will either come to the students house or meet them at a central location. The list covers ALL disciplines at EVERY level, so it is very long. Please advise parents to look down the subject column first to narrow their search and then look for the tutors' location.




OPEN TUTORIALS - Please remember we have an open door policy, so students can come and go. Students need to come in to tutorials with their problem number written down, so that time is not wasted trying to log online to see the problem. This is not one on one tutoring.
