Grade 8 Honors Math

  • Instructional time should focus on three critical areas:

    Five critical areas:

    • Students develop fluency writing, interpreting, analyzing, and translating between various forms of linear equations and inequalities.
    • Students build on and extend their knowledge of exponents to explore exponential functions to compare and contrast to linear functions.  They will also interpret arithmetic and geometric sequences.
    • Students analyze data and assess how a model fits data with the use of regression, residual analysis and technology.
    • Students will strengthen their ability to see structure in and create quadratic and exponential expressions.
    • Students will explore quadratic functions by interpreting various forms of quadratic expressions, and expand their knowledge into those functions that are piece-wise defined.


    Mathematical Practice Standards

    1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
    2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
    3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
    4. Model with mathematics.
    5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
    6. Attend to precision.
    7. Look for and make use of structure
    8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
