Grade 8 Math Syllabus                                   Textbook: Holt Mathematics Grade 8 – Common Core Edition

Course Overview

In 8th grade, students gain understanding of concepts of linear and non-linear functions, incorporating and representing quadratic equations. This culminates in the recognition and application of solutions involving number theory, rational and irrational numbers, and equations and inequalities. Students should recognize and apply two-dimensional and three-dimensional formulas, including the Pythagorean Theorem, surface area, and volume. Pre-Algebra builds upon the essential skills of arithmetic as they apply to algebra. Real numbers and linear equations, linear inequalities, factoring, fractions, graphing and some elements of geometry are stressed in preparation for a rigorous course in Algebra 1.
