**8th Grade Math**

MATH 8/INTRODUCTION TO ALGEBRA is developed to align with the NJ Student Learning Standards and help students learn to recognize and appreciate the role mathematics plays in the real world. Mathematics is made accessible with a consistent lesson format which focuses on student understanding of each skill and then couples the skill with daily life. The use of visual models, hands-on learning, and technology help make concepts clear and understandable. Major units of study include: Roots and Radicals, Equations with Roots & Radicals, Pythagorean Theorem, Distance Formula & Midpoints, Scientific Notation, Solving Equations, Graphing Linear Equations, Modeling Relationships, Functions, Data, 3D Geometry(Volume and Surface area), and 2D Geometry (Transformations). With a comfortable bridge from the concrete to the abstract and a broad yet solid foundation for algebra, the students will make the connection from Math 8/Introduction to Algebra to high school Algebra more comfortably.
