Middle School Mathematics

As students move further into the year and deeper into their study of mathematics, they sometimes encounter material that is challenging them in new ways. When this happens there is the opportunity to demonstrate a fixed or growth mindset.

In class we are encouraging a growth mindset for students to be able to overcome challenges and see them as opportunities. One of the ways we encourage persevering through challenges is finding new ways to learn and practice the material. Here are several sites that offer additional opportunities to deepen understanding and see material in new ways. 


As always, teachers are also willing to meet with students during a planned before and/or after school time in addition to lunch/recess.

The Summit Preparatory School is a fully accredited, non-religious, private school offering a full-time seated independent education for students in Springfield, Ozark, Nixa, Rogersville, and the greater Southwest Missouri area.
