Picture of Students Working in a Class
  • Grade 8 students learn about irrational numbers, radicals, and integer exponents.  They study linear euqations and inequlities, linear functions, and solve systems of linear equaitons by graphing.  In geometry units, students explore congruence and similiarity, angle relationships, Pythagorean theorem, and volumes of cylineders, cones and spheres.  Eighth grade students investigate patters of association between two variables.  At the end of the course studnets take the 8th Grade End-of-Grade (EOG) Exam.
