Mercer Admin will check which students have completed this summer work on 8/18 and will schedule those who complete into 7th grade Algebra. Those who do not will take 7th grade math.

    There are about 40 lessons. Some lessons you will surely pass the pretest if you are careful, and you will then get to skip that lesson. Others you will need to take your time on. Pace yourself. If you complete one or two lessons a day you will finish before the end of Summer. Important: Don’t wait until August to start.
