Summer 2020 Assignments
The Oak Hall Middle and Upper School Library offers digital editions of as many of our Summer Reading books as are available for sale on OverDrive. There are a few titles that are not available as digital copies. However, students can place print editions of these books on hold at the Alachua County library and pick them up when they are available. The Alachua County library will also have digital editions available of these books. Be certain to take notes as you read and save them for future reference. If you use the Sora app, the student-friendly version of the OverDrive app, you can create and save notes that will be available even after you return the book.
Math is a cumulative discipline because each course requires mastery of concepts learned in previous courses to build upon. For this reason, the math department has carefully designed summer assignments collaboratively in order to best prepare students for the math course that they will be taking this upcoming school year. The purpose of the summer assignment is for the student to reinforce fundamental and foundational prior knowledge that will be essential to the student’s success in the new course. Therefore, it is imperative that the correct summer assignment is chosen and completed.
Below you will find links to the summer assignments for each course in the Upper School math department. Students are to select the course that they will be taking in the 2020-2021 school year. This is the course that the student was recommended for and that appears on the student’s course list for 2020-2021. For example, if a student took Geometry in the 2019-2020 school year and was recommended for Algebra II for the 2020-2021 school year, then the student is to complete the summer assignment found under the link for Algebra II, not the link that says Geometry.
The assignment will be collected the first day of classes and revised for completion and genuine effort. Work must be shown for credit. Assignments completed for the wrong course will not be accepted.
Within the first few days of the new school year, the assignments will be discussed in class, followed by a diagnostic assessment. This assessment is to inform the teacher’s instruction and also to verify that the course is the best fit for the student.
