Overview

This math video course extensively covers the grade 8 math curriculums, yet is unique because it activates curiosity through questioning, real-life problems and opportunities for students to connect to interesting math situations and to make sense of math from its foundation that will help in upper-level math courses, too.  These math situations and activities are rooted in the foundations of algebra, number sense, geometry and data analysis, and developed in a challenging way to spark creative thinking about the relationships of these math foundations through a deeper understanding.  The depth of understanding grows as students reflect, evaluate and analyze.  Math concepts and skills cover exponents, scientific notation, roots, real numbers, Pythagorean Theorem, transformation, similarity, line and angle relationships, functions and bivariate data.

Course Goals

Upon completion of this course, students will have a solid understanding of the relationship between tables, equations and graphs, and know how real-life situations use these concepts. Equations include linear and nonlinear equations and many functions are explored.

Students will use real numbers, and include the use of rational and irrational numbers.  Students learn the practicality of scientific notation and the Pythagorean Theorem. 

Students will be able to compare transformation of figures to dilation of figures and as a result, explain congruency and similarity of figures. Students extend their use of geometry by Rigid Motion Transformation, Similarity, Line and Angle Relationships, area and volume, with many investigations into real-life examples. 

Real-life situations extend into solving equations by understanding the meaning of slope and y-intercept in context of a problem situation. Other graphical analyses will be explored with various situations and contexts to deepen the relationship between the independent variable and the dependent variable.  The context of linear equations deepens with systems of equations because students will be able to explain situations such as a break-even point, and how it can be solved graphically and algebraically.  Furthermore, students will be able to compare and contrast equations and classify these, such as linear and quadratic.  Students will be able to analyze parameters of functions and requirements that identify graphs as functions. 

Bivariate data analysis help students to extend their understanding of the independent and dependent variables to determine whether relationships between these variables exist.  Trend analysis helps a beginning understanding of correlation between these two variables. 

Target Audience

This course is targeted to middle school students and is useful to high school students who need reinforcement in foundational concepts and skills in algebra and functions, geometry, and data analysis.
