The 8th grade Math class will embrace algebraic thinking concepts and master the curriculum needed to prepare them for high school math. The year will include an introduction to high school Algebra and Geometry so that a solid foundation of basic concepts is achieved. We will strive to exceed the goals set forth by the state standards and rigorously prepare students for academic success.


The three critical areas of the new core curriculum include concepts of functions and the use of functions to describe quantitative relationships, analysis of two and three dimensional space and figures, and the implementation of procedures to solve linear equations, systems of linear equations, and understand slope of a line to analyze situations and solve problems.


I will promote confidence in my students and encourage a positive attitude toward problem solving.


Sixth grade Math students will conquer and master the skills of computation while exploring and developing a sense of curiosity into the world of algebraic thinking concepts.


The year will be dedicated to four critical areas of math. It will focus on the use of rates and ratios to solve problems, explore fractions, rational numbers, positive and negative integers, introduce algebraic expressions and equations, and expose students to an understanding of statistical thinking. They will apply these concepts to real life situations to solve problems.


I will challenge and support my students while together we continue to maintain our high state scores.




8th grade parents please read

On Wednesday, September 30th at 6PM we will hold a brief but detailed meeting for 8th Grade parents regarding information for high schools.
