• Liberty Middle School Summer Math Information


    Staying active in your math practice is the best way to start out your school year. Liberty students are encouraged to spend one hour a week practicing math skills on the online program, IXL.   Each Liberty student should have their user name and password as it is the same one they used while in school. Students should, however, use @bethelsd instead of @liberty when logging in. Below is a list of skills by grade level or by advanced class students should focus on:


    How To Use IXL for Liberty Middle Summer Math for Liberty Students…

    1. Log in with your user name and password at https://www.ixl.com/signin/libertymiddle
    2. Click on the Math tab.
    3. Click on the appropriate Grade level Math skills.
    4. Work through the skills listed below as a review for next year’s math class. The standards recommended are the ones you will need to specifically for the first two chapters of your math class.
    5. If you complete all of the recommended skills, complete other skills as a refresher so you are better prepared to be a middle school Math student.


    If you are having difficulty, please email Melissa Heltsley at: mheltsley@bethelsd.org . Make sure to explain your difficulty (need user name/password information, difficulty navigating the website, etc.) and provide student first/last name and contact phone number.
