Summer Math - IXL
Tower utilizes IXL, an interactive math website, that allows for independent work, and instant assessment, including tools for teachers to monitor student progress. Current Tower students have an existing account, including a username and a password with which they can access IXL. Parents of Lower School students should reference communication from their child's teachers regarding the use of IXL, and the recommended number of hours of study, as recommendations vary by grade.
Username: student's first initial, followed by last name
Password: student's first initial, followed by last initial
Example: Peter Walsh
Students must be logged in to IXL for their work to be recorded. If you have difficulty logging in to IXL, please email Kelly Klocker for assistance.
