The 8th Grade Mathematics curriculum is driven primarily by the newly adopted Indiana Academic Standards. These standards direct the curriculum to contain a wide array of mathematical concepts, such as number sense, computation, algebra, geometry, measurement, data analysis, and problem solving. 8th Grade Mathematics will provide students with a solid base of mathematical knowledge, which is crucial for future success in more advanced courses such as Algebra I and Geometry.

Students should come to class prepared to take notes every day. These notes provide assistance when working on homework and are an excellent study tool when preparing for tests. In addition to your notebook, always bring pencils, erasers, a calculator, and your textbook unless you are told otherwise.
Students should expect to receive some sort of assignment on most days. While some of these assignments may be finished in class, others will need to be completed at home. I expect all students to complete and turn in assignments 100% of the time!!!
Upon completion of each chapter, students will be assessed through tests and quizzes. Students will receive a study guide prior to all tests.
Grades for this course are determined by students’ performance on daily assignments, tests, quizzes, and quarter exams. Please note the grade breakdown below.Tests: 34%Progress Checks/Quizzes: 21.25%Homework: 29.75%Quarter Exam: 15%
Each grading period will conclude with an exam which covers all of the academic standards that were covered. Study guides will be provided prior to quarter exams.
