TenMarks Summer Math Program
FREE Summer Math Program to r everse learning loss in 60 minutes per week.

 The TenMarks summer program begins with students taking an assessment. After taking the assessment  an individualized program that adapts to his or her specific needs is created for the student. Each student’s summer curriculum is designed to review concepts from the past year, and get introduced to concepts for the year ahead. TenMarks offers real-time feedback to students and their parents. The feedback measures a student's progress toward a standard or goal. Based upon a student's responses to questions the program automatically adjusts to provide more or less of a type of question.

Great Math and Other Games

Science at Home

DIY.org  is a neat website on which kids can find dozens of DIY projects that they can do on their own or with their parents. DIY.org provides videos and instructions on how to do the projects. After going through the directions kids then try to complete the project. When they've completed the project they can take a picture and upload it to their DIY.org portfolios. Kids can share examples of their projects through DIY.org. Kids cannot register on  DIY.org  without a parent's permission. Parents have their own DIY.org dashboards that they can use to track the activities of their children. Children registered on DIY.org have aliases and cartoon avatar pictures.

Scifun.org , written by a University of Wisconsin chemistry professor, features twenty-five fun and safe science experiments  that can be performed with household items. The experiments introduce students to basic chemistry concepts through fun, hands-on activity.  The experiments on Science is Fun are probably most appropriate for use with students in the fourth through ninth grade. In addition to providing detailed directions for conducting each experiment,  Science is Fun  provides an explanation of the chemistry at work in each experiment. Complementing the experiments are easy-to-understand explanations  of many chemicals and elements on the periodic table.
