8th Grade Math Units
We have 7 Units to cover in 8th grade math. A summary of each unit is listed below.

Mathematics Grade 8 Unit Descriptions

The eighth grade standards are designed to prepare students to bridge from middle grades mathematics to high school courses that will ensure all students are college and career ready by the conclusion of their fourth high school course.

The Standards for Mathematical Practice are a key component as they are applied in each course to equip students in making sense of problems and building a set of tools they can use in real world situations. Rather than racing to cover many topics in a “mile-wide, inch-deep curriculum”, the standards ask mathematics teachers to significantly narrow and deepen the way time and energy are spent
in the classroom. Much of the eighth grade mathematics curriculum focuses on functions and linear relationships as building blocks to algebra and geometry.

Unit 1: The first unit centers around geometry standards related to transformations – translations, reflections, rotations, and dilations, both on and off the coordinate plane – and the notion of congruence and similarity. Students will understand congruence and similarity using
physical models, transparencies, or geometry software. Students learn to use informal arguments to establish proof of angle sum and exterior angle relationships related to parallel lines and two dimensional polygons.

Unit 2: Students will explore and understand that there are numbers that are not rational, called irrational numbers, and will approximate their value by using rational numbers. Clear understanding of irrational numbers will be demonstrated using models, number lines, and
expressions of estimates and approximations. Students will work with radicals and express very large and very small numbers using integer exponents.

Unit 3:
Students will extend their work with irrational numbers by applying the Pythagorean Theorem to situations involving right triangles, including finding distance. Proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse allow students to demonstrate understanding of the theorem. Real-world problems are solved involving volume of cylinders, cones, and spheres.

Unit 4:
The fourth unit introduces students to relations and functions, and defines a function as a relation whose every input corresponds with a single output. From this understanding, students define, evaluate, and compare functions. Functions are described and modeled using a variety of representations, including algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, and verbally.

Unit 5: In unit five, functions are further explored, focusing on the study of linear functions. Students will understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations, and solve mathematical and real-life problems involving such relationships. Slope is formally introduced, and students work with equations for slope in different forms, including comparing proportional relationships represented in different ways (graphically, tabular, algebraically, verbally).

Unit 6:
Students will extend the study of linear relationships by exploring models and tables. They will use functions to model relationships between quantities and describe the rate of change. The study of statistics expands from more simplistic samples and collections in sixth and seventh grade, to bivariate data, which can be graphed and a line of best fit determined.

Unit 7:
The final unit broadens the study of linear equations to situations involving simultaneous equations. Using graphing, substitution, and elimination, students learn to solve systems of equations algebraically, and make applications to real-world situations.
