Math 8 (Period B,C &E)

Course Description

Math 8 (Course 3) is an exciting approach to preparing for Algebra I. The class will teach the basics of Algebra: Exponents, Scientific Notation, Relationships, Functions & Linear Equations; as well as Transformational Geometry and Statistics. We will be using the Big Ideas Course 3 textbook and online supplements. Most of the homework will be offered in an online format and I would like to encourage students to use the online option, but it will not be required. If there is a specific assignment that seems to difficult or lengthy, please make a note on the students homework and sign were you had them stop and we will discuss options in class the next day. 

 

Our job is to connect the State Standards for Mathematical Practice to the Standards for Mathematical Content, Grades 6-8 are organized into Domains: The Number System, Expressions and Equations, Functions, Geometry and Statistics & Probability.  The curriculum will be similar to that in high school, so good organization, effort and consistency will be key ingredients to success in this class.  My goal is to have students leave 8th grade confident of their math skills and ready to succeed in High School mathematics.

After passing this course, students will be ready to take Algebra I.
