Math 8 Course Description - This course is designed for students who completed Math 7 and for those students who meet the established criteria and requirements. The content in this course follows the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. In Grade 8, instructional time will focus on five critical areas: (1) formulating, solving, and reasoning with linear equations and systems of linear equations algebraically and in real-world contexts; (2) modeling the association in bivariate data with a linear equation; (3) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe qualitative and quantitative relationships; (4) analyzing 2- and 3-dimensional space and figures by measuring and/or comparing their lengths, distances, and angles, and determining how various geometric transformations affect their similarity and congruence; and (5) understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem in geometric and real-world scenarios. Students will engage in the conceptual understanding of these standards to develop procedural fluency using the course material provided.
