7th Grade Honors Math - SUMMER HONORS COURSE

7th Grade Honors Math Information

YOU MUST COMPLETE THE SUMMER HONORS COURSE IN ORDER TO BE CONSIDERED FOR 7TH GRADE HONORS MATH.

In Canvas, activities are included in modules to help you master those skills. The activities include instructional videos, notes, and IXL lessons. You must score 90% or above on the IXL lessons. Mastering the sixth grade priority standards will help you be successful in honors (7th grade) math.

In the military, “got your six” means “I’ve got your back.” The saying originated with World War I fighter pilots referencing the rear of an airplane as the six o’clock position. If you picture yourself at the center of a clock face, the area directly in front of you is twelve o’clock. Six o’clock is what lies behind you. On a battlefield, your “six” is the most vulnerable. So, when someone tells you that they’ve “got your six,” it means they’re watching your back.
