8^{th} Grade Mathematics |
Overview:
Eighth grade students deepen their understanding of rational and irrational numbers. Algebraically, students compute with radicals and exponents, solve linear equations and define, solve, compare, and graph functions. In geometry, seventh grade students understand and use the Pythagorean Theorem and solve problems involving volumes of cylinders, cones, and spheres.
Specifically, your child will…
Functions
· Define, solve, and compare functions
· Understand that a function is a rule and the ordered pairs are input and output
· Build and use functions to model relationships
The Number System
· Understand rational and irrational numbers
Expressions and Equations
· Work with radicals and integer exponents
· Understand the connection between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations and be able to graph them
· Understand that the unit rate of a proportional relationship is the slope of the graph
· Use similar triangles to explain slope and understand y = mx + b
· Analyze and solve linear equations with one variable and pairs of simultaneous linear equations
Geometry
· Understand congruence and similarity
· Understand, use, and apply the Pythagorean Theorem
· Solve problems involving volumes of cylinders, cones, and spheres
Statistics and Probability
· Investigate patterns of sets of data
· Construct and interpret scatter plots
