Eighth Grade Math Targets with Quarterly Indicators
Number and Operations
+ Calculate problems involving order of operations.
+ Formulate and solve algebraic expressions.
+ Develop ratios to solve various problems.
+ Analyze shapes and parallel lines cut by transversal.
+ Create a net for three dimensional geometric shapes.
+ Recognize, classify, and discuss properties of all geometric figures including point, line, and plane.
+ Predict and assess a geometric shape’s image after performing a series of transformations.
+ Formulate and solve distance/geometry problems using algebra and the coordinate plane and space.
+ Calculate and justify volume and area of different geometric shapes.
Data and Probability
+ Interchange and analyze representations of a given set of data to another representation (e.g. line graph, bar graph, histogram, etc.)
+ Predict the outcome of an event using theoretical and experimental probability.
+ Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities and determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship.
+ Solve two-step linear equations and inequalities in one variable.
+ Assemble and assess formulas to solve word problems.
