Summer Math Packets from the FHHS Math Department

We ask that our rising freshmen please pay attention to the following instructions for summer math packets. If you are taking Honors Algebra 1, Honors Geometry, Honors Algebra 2, Precalculus or AP Calculus AB/BC, you will need to work on a packet of review material over the summer. The problems are review materials from the previous class taken. We recommend that you organize the work for the packet in a spiral notebook or on loose leaf paper stapled together.

When you finish the packet, you and a parent must sign the instruction sheet included with the packet. You must return the sheet and the packet to your math teacher at the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year. Your teacher will have a few days for you to ask questions and then there may be a test, (without a calculator) over the material during the first week of school.

Packets are available at the FHMS front office and on the FHHS Math Department web page.

In addition, the district will be partnering with the Boys & Girls Club to offer summer camp and enrichment classes. Finally, the Town of Fountain Hills' Community Services Department offers a wide variety of classes and activities for students.
