8th Grade Math Course
As atudents progress in thier educational pathway, more knowledge and skills will be required. This course will foster a development and understanding of mathematics in the real world. Students will acquire skills in adding, subtracting, multiplyuing and diving signed numbers which will include integers. Students will solve multi-step equations involving the real number system and algebraic thinking. Problems solving in this course includes applications of ratios, proportion, fractions, and percents. It continues to develop other important mathematics topics including patterns, functions, gemoetry, measurement, probability, and statistics. It provides hands-on, visuals for students who are below grade level as well as renrichment for advanced students.
Algebra I is intended to build a foundation for all higher math classes. It is the brige from the concrete to the abstract study of mathematics. This course will review algebraic expressions, integers, and mathematical proporties that will lead into working with variables and linear equations. There will be an in-depth study of graphing, polynomials, quadratic equations, data analysis, and systems of equations through direct class instruction, group work, homework, and Fuse (I-pads).
