MATH PREPARATION: GRADE*
Entering Grade 8 – Students will extend their knowledge of expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving both linear equations and systems of linear equations. Students will also learn about functions and using functions to describe quantitative relationships. In addition, the class will explore problem-solving strategies as students deepen their understanding of two- and three-dimensional space and figures, while using distance, angle, similarity and congruence. The course also covers understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem.
* Meets Common Core standards. The Math Preparation series is designed to introduce key Common Core math concepts from the upcoming year while reinforcing the prior year’s most essential carryover skills.
