Math: 8th Grade

In 8th grade, students are introduced to and focus on several new mathematical concepts including: linear equations, functions, the Pythagorean Theorem, and volume, all of which are further described and defined below. In particular, students solve equations as applied in real-world ways to equip them with skills that may be practically useful and to understand the importance of math in their own lives.

To build math skills, your eighth grader:
Solves linear equations, which are equations that make a straight line when graphed and are expressed as y = mx + b. Compares the lines graphed by two linear expressions and determines whether they are parallel, intersecting, or the same. Understands that there are rational and irrational numbers. Understands, compares, and solves equations with functions that are usually expressed as f(n) and represent the relationships between an input and an output. Understands and solves equations using the Pythagorean Theorem: a2 +b2 = c2 Provides the thinking behind and the reasoning for how problems are solved; critiques others’ reasoning.
