      During the 8th grade year in math, we will explore the following concepts/units:


      • The Number System (Real Numbers (Rational and Irrational Numbers))

      • Expressions and Equations (Linear Equations, Exponent Rules, Scientific Notation, and Linear Systems)

      • Functions

      • Geometry (Congruency, Similarity, Pythagorean Theorem, and Formulas)

      • Statistics (Scatter Plots) 


      Students will use Google Classroom to keep up with assignments and announcements to the class. This should be checked daily. Parents can use their Google Guardian Reports and PowerSchool for assignment and grade updates.

      In addition to using the online math program Reveal, we will also use various resources such as handouts, worksheets, Edpuzzle, IXL, ALEKS, Flocabulary, etc, to further comprehension and mastery of these and review/foundational skills.

    *Other tools and resources will be used as needed.
