Grade 8 students learn about irrational numbers, radicals, and integer exponents. They study linear equations and inequalities, linear functions, and solve systems of linear equations by graphing. In geometry units, students explore congruence and similiarity, angle relationships, Pythagorean theorem, and volumes of cylinders, cones and spheres. Eighth grade students investigate patterns of association between two variables. At the end of the course, students take the 8th Grade End-of-Grade (EOG) Exam.
