Hawken Summer Math Packet Philosophy
 
Hawken students entering grades 3-12 are expected to complete a set of problems each summer before returning to school.  Ideally, students should complete their summer math packets in the 2-3 weeks prior to school restarting in August.  Their purpose is to help students Get Ready for the start of the coming school year by using problems to re-activate concepts they learned in their last math classes.  The problems selected for summer packets typically reflect the foundational ideas upon which Hawken’s teachers will build the first few units of the new school year. 
 
Completed packets are due from all students to their new teachers on the first day of school.  Students should expect to receive feedback on their work within about a week from the start of school.  The form of that feedback will vary from teacher to teacher and course to course.
 
Ideally, students should be able to solve all of the problems packet without assistance, but it is entirely appropriate to work with others and research online sites for help on any concepts that aren’t completely remembered.  Most packets include suggestions for optional resources, if needed.  If a student does use any external source, that help should be indicated in the solutions to help the new teacher get a sense of which topics might need additional review at the start of the new school year.  While students first should attempt to solve problems on their own, there is no harm or penalty in seeking help.  Remember, the point of this summer work is to Get Ready for success in the coming year.

Cover pages are posted initially with suggestions for preparation; the actual packets will be posted on July 29th so that student work on the problems ideally is still in recent memory when school starts.
