# Keep your student’s math skills sharp.

An enjoyable and engaging way to keep your student’s math skills fresh over the summer.

### Let’s keep those math skills sharp

Georgia Southern University’s Summer Bridge Math Program is a great way for your student to keep their math skills sharp. There are five classes in the series, each consisting of 12 class sessions. Each class covers key math topics from one grade, 1st through 8th. The Summer Bridge Math 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.

### Each Summer Bridge Math Class includes the following

• 12 sessions of expert instruction
