Dear Incoming Seton Student,
Here at Seton, we use a web-based math program called MathXLforschool, in addition to
textbooks. This program allows you to study, submit your homework, and take quizzes and tests
online. It can be accessed from any computer. If you do not have internet access at home, you
can always do your assignments from school, or at a public library.
To help you be more successful next year, the math department requires a review before school
starts in August. This assignment may require between 10 and 15 hours to complete. Do not try
to finish it in one day or postpone it until the last minute. Rather, spend 1-1.5 hours per day over
