8th Grade Math Curriculum
Teaching 8th grade math effectively will help your students advance their algebraic reasoning to solve multivariable linear equations, use functions and analyze multidimensional figures. And as your child progresses through the year, their confidence and ability to learn will improve, making them more prepared for their high school years.
If you’re interested in learning more, the following information will provide valuable insight on what steps you should take to meet your student’s 8th grade math goals and objectives and how our 8th grade math curriculum can help.
What Math Should an 8th Grader Know?
An 8th grade math program should cover all the math strands, not just arithmetic. The major math strands for 8th grade curriculum are number sense and operations, algebra, geometry and spatial sense, measurement, and data analysis and probability. While these math strands might surprise you, they are all critical lessons for an 8th grade math curriculum.
These skills will not only improve their math fluency, they will help build upon the math facts, concepts, and strategies that they learned in the past, making future success more achievable. Some things that eighth graders should know in math include:
- Properties of parallelism, perpendicularity, and symmetry to solve real world problems.
- Translating word expressions and equations into algebraic expressions and equations.
- Substituting rational numbers into expressions with exponents and radicals.
- The Pythagorean theorem to solve real world problems.
- Interpreting circle, line, bar, histogram, stem-and-leaf, and box-and-whisker graphs
- Solving real world problems with rational numbers (including integers, decimals and fractions).
Math Objectives for 8th Grade
The following is a general list of some math learning objectives eighth graders should attain:
- Identify rational and irrational numbers and describe meanings.
- Calculate and approximate principal square roots.
- Identify and perform transformations (reflection, translation, rotation, and dilation) of a figure on a coordinate plane.
- Solve problems in two variables using linear inequalities.
- Define and differentiate between different types of sampling techniques.
- Use technology to determine the mean, median, mode, and range of a set of real world data.
