Extra Math Practice

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to give everyone the Nelson BC Math Focus link. If you are wanting to build in some extra math practice into your routine this site has some questions that you can complete online. It is also the brand of books we carry in our grade 6 and 7 classrooms. This would be a great way to prepare for tests and gain some extra practice at home. I will consider adding it to our regular routines as well.

Our upcoming test on Measurement can be found in chapter 5 for grade 7s and chapter 8 for grade 6s.
