• Course Description Math 8

Grade 8 Mathematics students build their understanding of mathematics by studying proportions, geometry, probability, statistics, order of operations, square roots, and other algebraic concepts. They will understand the concept of function as a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. Students will translate among representations of functions and describe how aspects of functions are reflected in the different representations. Grade 8 Mathematics students will complete work on volume and surface area by investigating cones and cylinders and will solve real-world and mathematical problems involving measureable attributes of two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects. Students will understand the statement of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse and explain why the Pythagorean Theorem works in terms of decomposing squares.
