Free Online Math Resource

Summer learning loss in math is an issue that impacts students at all grade levels.  Students lose an average of more than two months of math comprehension every summer.  Polk County Public Schools is offering a free online math resource this summer for Polk County Public School students rising to first grade through Algebra 2. 

To access this free resource for your child, go to www.tenmarks.com, click on "Parents-Sign Up", and enter your information with S14P3351 as the "Access Code From Your School" code.  Complete the general grade information for your child and he/she will be given access to the grade specific math material.
