8th Grade Math
Algebra I Concepts:
The ultimate goal of this course is to give the student a foundation for exploring and
understanding algebra and geometry. Topics include the basic operations and
properties of real numbers, measurement on a plane and in space, data analysis, linear
equations, graphing, problem solving, functions and deductive reasoning.
Advanced Algebra I-8:
Advanced Algebra I is an above-grade level advanced math course. Students are
expected to enter this course fluent in their ability to complete operations with rational
numbers (decimals, fractions, percentages, integers) without a calculator. Algebra is a
basic course for all college preparatory mathematics courses. Instructional emphasis
will be placed on modeling real-life situations with expressions, equations, inequalities
and systems of equations, and inequalities. In addition, students will explore functions
as they represent real-world phenomena in the form of tables, equations and graphs
through the use of technology.
Prerequisite: Completion of Advanced Pre-Algebra with a grade of “B” or better,
teacher recommendation, and completion of the summer assignment.
