Instructions for completing Section 2

## What will we learn?

Math 8 focuses on finalizing algebraic concepts, linear relationships, and geometric concepts. For more information on the exactly what is taught can be found here.

A brief overview of Math 8:

"In Grade 8, instructional time should focus on three critical areas: (1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; (2) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; (3) analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem."

Also, students will be focused on developing the habits needed to be successful mathematicians. The Common Core refers to these habit as Mathematical Practices. The practices are essential to students focus on the essential skills needed to be successful at any area of mathematics. The practices are as follows:

Practice Standard #1 will be a main focus for this class. Preserving through problems is a characteristic every great mathematician possesses. Mathematics has the ability to make even the most skilled among us feel incredibly challenged. Students will need to develop and possess perseverance in order to achieve success in this and future math classes.

The practices are essential to students focus on the essential skills needed to be successful at any area of mathematics. The practices are as follows:

- Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
- Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
- Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
- Model with mathematics
- Use appropriate tools strategically.
- Attend to precision.
- Look for and make use of structure.
- Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning
