## Program of study for 8th grade

The CCSS core curriculum for 8th grade covers a range of categories, including:

• Number
Students work with integers, fractions, decimals, and percentages, deepening their understanding of these number systems. They work with numbers in standard form.

• Algebra
Students further develop their algebraic skills and reasoning abilities. They solve equations and inequalities, and explore sequences and patterns. They explore algebraic concepts such as linear and quadratic functions, graphing and interpreting equations, and algebraic manipulation.

• Ratio and proportion
Students study ratios and proportional relationships, including direct and inverse proportions. They solve problems involving scale factors, rates, and percentages. They also explore the concept of rates of change and their applications in real-world contexts.

• Geometry & measures
Students study properties of 2D and 3D shapes, including angles, lines, and symmetry. They calculate the perimeter, area, and volume of different shapes and solids. They explore trigonometry, including the use of Pythagoras' theorem and basic trigonometric ratios. They also study transformations, such as reflections, translations, rotations, and enlargements.

• Probability
Students explore probability concepts and solve problems involving probability. They learn about independent events, and tree and sample space diagrams.

• Statistics
Students analyze and interpret data using various statistical techniques. They explore concepts of probability and statistical inference, including calculating and interpreting measures of central tendency and dispersion, conducting surveys and experiments, and making predictions based on data.

The 8th grade math curriculum aims to deepen students' mathematical understanding, strengthen their problem-solving skills, and prepare them for more advanced mathematical concepts and topics in subsequent years. ## Math topic index for 8th grade
