8th Grade Math
Common Core Curriculum
Our curriculum aligns with the new Kansas College and Creer Ready Standards. We foster development in algebraic thinking through exploration, discovery, and instructional activities in the four strands of mathematics – number and computation, algebra, geometry, and probability and statistics.
Our textbook is Big Ideas Math. Online access to the textbook can be found at www.bigideasmath.com. This series offers many online resources for parents and students. The website provides copies of all activities, extra practice, remediation, practice tests/quizzes, online games, web lessons and many other valuable resources.
You can find a listing of all assignments by viewing the SHMS Google Apps calendar, or by looking at Skyward.
I am available to provide additional help from 7:30 - 7:50 A.M. before school, or after school on most days from 3:25 - 3:45. Please contact me anytime if you have a questions or concern about your student.
Second Quarter Curriculum
Second quarter we will be doing lots of graphing! We will be graphing linear equations and systems of linear equations, learning about slope and slope-intercept form. We will also write linear equations and systems using slope and a point, and two points.
"The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple." ~S. Gudder
