Math Skills: Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade An eighth-grader will:

• Be able to do complex inversions between different mathematical functions. For example, she'll know the additional percent of apples needed to make a 10-inch pie into a 12-inch pie. Another example: If the 1/2-pound burger costs $5.75, what would be a fair price for the 1/3-pound burger?

• Be familiar with geometry terms (diameter, radius, circumference, parallel, etc.).

• Represent the same algebraic function in different ways: as a graph, a set of ordered pairs, in algebraic rule or in a written statement.

• Figure out the rules of chance in statistics: For example, he'll be able to figure out the odds of rolling a 12 on two numbered cubes.
