Understanding the meaning of multiplication by 8d7gUqg


									             Welcome to Kingswood Oxford
                       and the
                     Upper Prep!

The work in this packet reviews the multiplication and division concepts
covered in your elementary school. It is expected that you know all your
math facts when you come to school in the fall. This packet is a way for you
to review and practice those skills. Please complete this packet and return it
to your math teacher in September. I would suggest working on this packet
towards the end of the summer. Please do not use a calculator and show all
of your work. If you have difficulty completing this packet you may seek out
extra help from your teacher in the fall.

Thanks, have a great summer and see you in September!
