**MATH 8/INTROD****U****CTION T****O 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.
