Compacted Math is a program at our school for eligible students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. Students enter Compacted Math in 6th grade and by the time they complete 8th grade, they will have mastered 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grade math concepts.

These students recently headed outside to take measurements to begin creating scale drawings of the school gardens. They are studying geometric figures in the classroom and this hands on activity make the math concepts take on practical meaning.  By determining an appropriate scale, they will be able to create smaller drawings using that scale.
