### Math - 8th Grade Curriculum

Jenny Stafford
This is my 8th grade math bundle. Everything included in this bundle is my 8th grade interactive notebook, graphic organizers, activities, exit slips, foldables, and assessments (pre-tests, post-tests, and vocabulary quizzes).

The file is a zip file containing PDF files: Interactive Notebook, Activities, Exit Slips, Foldables, and Assessments.

All of the material is 8th grade and aligned to Common Core standards. All standards are covered (8.NS, 8.EE, 8.F, 8.G, and 8.SP)

The interactive Notebook is amazing! It provides students with a way to be organized. The notebook has the standards and "I can" statements so that students are aware of the learning goals for the lesson.

The activities are worksheets that engage students and develop their critical thinking skills.

The exit slips include every standard. These are great to check for understanding.

The unit tests are great assessments to determine acquired knowledge of the standard. Each standard includes a pre-test, post-test, and vocabulary quiz.

Included is a pre-test, post-test, and vocabulary quiz on 8.NS (8th grade Common Core standard - Number Sense).

Students will:

1.) Determine if numbers are rational or irrational.
2.) Fill out a table containing perfect squares.
3.) Approximate square roots that are irrational numbers.
4.) Use a number line to show where irrational numbers lie on the line.
5.) Determine the closest number to the square root of an irrational number.
5.) Convert fractions to decimals.
6.) Convert repeating decimals to fractions.

The vocabulary included is square root, whole number, repeating decimal, real number, irrational number, rational number, perfect square, natural number, and terminating decimal.

Included is a pre-test, post-test, and 2 vocabulary quizzes on the 8th grade Common Core Standards Expressions & Equations (8.EE).

Students will:

1.) Use the law of exponents to simplify expressions
2.) Solve square roots
3.) Convert numbers to scientific notation
4.) Convert numbers to standard form
5.) Determine the slope, y-intercept, and slope-intercept form of a line
6.) Solve a system of equations
7.) Graphing a system of equations

The vocabulary included is base, exponent, expression, monomial, coefficient, scientific notation, standard form, slope-intercept form, variable, linear, distributive property, system of equations, point of intersection, elimination, substitution, unit rate, slope, and y-intercept.

Included is a pre-test, post-test, and vocabulary quiz on the 8th grade math standard functions (8.F).

Students will:

1.) Determine if a graph represents a function
2.) State the domain and range of a relation
3.) Plot points on a graph to determine if the table represents a function
4.) State if a function is decreasing, increasing, or constant
5.) Determine the output of a function machine
6.) Determine the recursive and explicit equation
7.) Determine the minimum, maximum, increasing interval, and decreasing interval of a graph
8.) Determine the rate of change, initial value, independent value, and dependent variable given a graph
9.) Sketch a graph given a situation

The vocabulary included is dependent, output, function, domain, range, decreasing function, input, range, non-linear function, relation, increasing function, and function notation.

Included is a pre-test, post-test, and vocabulary quiz on the Common Core 8th grade standard Geometry (8.G).

Students will:

1.) Perform transformations on figures such as reflections, rotations, dilations, and translations.
2.) Determine if two figures are similar.
3.) Determine if two figures are congruent.
4.) Determine the missing angle inside of a triangle.
5.) Determine the remote exterior angle.
6.) Use the Pythagorean Theorem to determine a missing length in a right triangle.
7.) Calculate the volume of three dimensional objects: cone, cylinder, and sphere.

The vocabulary included is rotation, reflection, dilation, translation, remote interior angle, exterior angle, Pythagorean Theorem, corresponding angles, similar figures, transversal, and congruent.

Included is a pre-test, post-test, and vocabulary quiz on 8.SP (8th grade Common Core standard - Statistics & Probability).

Students will:

1.) Construct a scatter plot.
2.) Describe the associations of scatter plots.
3.) Determine if given lines are an accurate line of fit for scatter plots.
4.) Draw a line of best fit.
5.) Write an equation in slope-intercept form for the line of best fit.
6.) Determine the association given word problems.
7.) Use a two-way table to determine the percent of preference.

The vocabulary included is line of best fit, cluster, nonlinear association, linear association, negative association, positive association, outlier, scatter plot, and bivariate measurement data.
