The University of Georgia’s Summer Bridge Program in Math is a great way for students to keep their math skills sharp. The learning loss students experience over the summer can have a significant impact on their performance in the upcoming school year. This program is ideal for those who want to keep their student engaged during the summer, either to reinforce the learning gains made during the previous year or as a preview of the math topics they will face in the upcoming year.
Presented as a “Visit to the Teacher’s Desk,” these classes are taught by a dedicated and experienced instructor. The lessons are interactive and in real-time.
Each program in the series (Grades 1-8) covers that grade’s key math topics. In addition to the scheduled class sessions, students will have access to recorded versions of each class session. Grades 6-8 have an in-classroom option. The cost of each program is $299.
