8th Grade Math
Common Core Curriculum
This is an exciting year as we are transitioning our curriculum to align with the new Common Core State Standards. We will 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.
We have adopted a new textbook which aligns with the Common Core curriculum, Big Ideas Math. Online access to the textbook can be found at www.bigideasmath.com. We are extremely excited about this series as it 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, during home room time, or after school from 3:25 - 3:45.
I believe that all students can be successful! I am excited to be working with you this year!
