Grade 8 Math

What we do:

Math in grades 7 and 8 seeks to meet the individualized academic needs of all students by focusing on computation and problem solving that relates to real-life situations.  The Math sequence will provide students with the fundamental skills they will need to be successful in future math courses. Emphasis is placed on problem solving involving consumer applications and proportional reasoning.  Students will further develop an understanding of the properties of real numbers and data analysis techniques, which are necessary for success in higher-level math courses.  Students will apply mathematical concepts and skills and the relationship among them to solve problem situations of varying complexities.  Through constant exercises, students will develop a repertoire of skills and strategies for solving a variety of problems.
