## Course Overview

## Grade 8 Math Course Overview

Grade 8 Math will relate concepts of decimals, ratios, rates, percent, exponents, combined with simple interest to solve real life problems and take informed decision financially. Students will get ready for high school as some extended algebraic skills will be part of our focus. They will master working with very large or small numbers using scientific notation.

Reference videos are provided for basic support. For guidance contact Anil Kumar.

**Social and Emotional Skills:** Engaging Minds Creatively is our approach to support learning of math concepts to be future ready with positive attitude. It is integral part of every transferable skill and can help students to build confidence and overcome anxiety.

**Numbers**: Real Numbers (Both Rational and Irrational Numbers)

- Understand the Number System and the difference between rational and irrational numbers
- Use Scientific Notation to represent vey large or very small numbers
- Estimate and calculate square root without calculator
- Apply the laws of exponents to provide mental calculations with big numbers
- Solve problems relating combination of right triangle using Pythagorean Theorem
- Use properties of order of operations to simplify expressions involving decimal, ratios, exponents, and square root.
- Multiply and divide fractions by fractions and simplify using multiple steps.
- Apply proportional reasoning to solve problems in many application.

**Algebra:** Operations with Polynomials

- Demonstrate clear understanding of variables, expressions, equations and inequalities, and apply this in solving real life situations
- Perform addition, subtraction and multiplication operations involving monomials and binomials
- Solve multi-step equations involving fractions
- Solve inequalities involving integers
- Determine explicit pattern rules to find the missing and/or unknown terms
- Model situations and apply skills learned to find strategic solutions for Distance-Speed-Time, Age, and Mixture related Word Problems
- Demonstrate skills to apply Unitary Method for rate problems
- UMCL approach for problem solving is an effective technique to practice at this level

**Data:** Manage, analyze, and use data to communicate effectively

- Identify situations involving one variable and situations involving two variables, and explain when each type of data is needed.
- Work on continuous and discrete data and select the type of graph best suited to represent the acquired information
- Create infographics about a data set, representing the data in appropriate way, including table, line graph, circle graph and bar graph to explain the scenario.
- Use mathematical language, including the terms – strong, weak, none, positive, negative, to describe the relationship between the two variables for various data set with and without outliers.
- Understand the impact of adding or removing data from data set on measure of centra tendency and describe how these changes alter the shape and distribution of the presentation.
- Analyze misleading graphs and provide convincing arguments to remove misleading preconceived notions and conclude convincingly the interpretation.

**Probability:** Concept of Sets, Venn Diagrams and Tree Diagrams

- Describe difference between independent and dependent events giving example
- Analyze theoretical and experimental probability of independent events
- Make predictions based of probability one or more events
- Describe likelihood of the event and use that information to make prediction
- Predict possibility of events using the tools like Venn Diagram, Tree Diagram and Decision Tables.

**Spatial Sense: Geometric Reasoning:**

- Identify geometric properties of tessellating shapes and identify the transformations that occur in the tessellations
- Make scale drawings to calculate actual length and areas
- Make object models using appropriate scales, showing top, front, and side views.
- Describe and classify cylinders, cone, prism, pyramids, according to their geometrical properties.
- Construction of angles, parallel/perpendicular lines, triangles and quadrilaterals

**Spatial Sense: Movement:**

- Perform dilation and describe similarity between the object and image
- Perform Translations, Reflection, and Rotation in Cartesian Plane

**Spatial Sense: Measurements:**

- Represent very large (mega, giga, tera) and very small values (micro, nano, pico) metric units using models, base ten relationship, and exponential notation.
- Solve parallel and transverse lines with angle properties
- Describe the difference and similarity between volume and capacity
- Find Area and Perimeter of two-dimensional composite shapes
- Calculate surface area and volume of composite objects

**Financial Literacy**

Appreciate value of money and apply mathematical concepts to think critically about it

- Identify and compare exchange rates and convert foreign currencies
- Describe some advantages and disadvantages of various payments methods that can be used dealing with multiple currencies
- Explain how the change in interest rate can affect the savings or loans in our normal life.

**Project and Assessment:** Apply skills acquired to demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving

- Create, track, and adjust sample budgets designed to meet long-term goals
- Research on topic of interest and present information showing the application of skills learned

**Objectives**

Engage students build a foundation in Maths to be future ready and successful.

**Prerequisites**

- Understand order of operations and working with fractions
