8th Grade Algebra 1 TAG Math Curriculum
well-balanced mathematics curriculum, the primary focal points at Grade 8
are using basic principles of algebra to analyze and represent both
proportional and non-proportional linear relationships and using
probability to describe data and make predictions.
mathematics in Grades 6-8, students build a foundation of basic
understandings in number, operation, and quantitative reasoning;
patterns, relationships, and algebraic thinking; geometry and spatial
reasoning; measurement; and probability and statistics.
- Students use concepts, algorithms, and properties of rational
numbers to explore mathematical relationships and to describe
increasingly complex situations.
- Students use algebraic thinking to describe how a change in one
quantity in a relationship results in a change in the other; and they
connect verbal, numeric, graphic, and symbolic representations of
- Students use geometric properties and relationships, as well as
spatial reasoning, to model and analyze situations and solve problems.
- Students communicate information about geometric figures or
situations by quantifying attributes, generalize procedures from
measurement experiences, and use the procedures to solve problems.
- Students use appropriate statistics, representations of data,
reasoning, and concepts of probability to draw conclusions, evaluate
arguments, and make recommendations.
Problem solving in meaningful contexts,
language and communication, connections within and outside mathematics,
and formal and informal reasoning underlie all content areas in
mathematics. Throughout mathematics in Grades 6-8, students use these
processes together with graphing technology and other mathematical tools
such as manipulative materials to develop conceptual understanding and
solve problems as they do mathematics.
