Welcome to Math 8 Class!
We are currently in semester 2 - marking period 3. The current unit is unit 5: Geometric Relationships which is about measuring and classifying angles; transforming polygons; verifying and applying the Pythagorean Theorem.
High expectations are expected for all students in the areas of academics, respect, responsibility and citizenship. Each student must take ownership for his / her success, failure and take control of his / her future.
Students must come to class prepared with their required tools (pencils/pens, erasers, binder with loose-leaf paper), textbooks, a good attitude and be ready to learn. Good attendance is critical to student growth.
Students should use their class time constructively, take and review class notes and complete homework assignments, as scheduled. Homework is assigned, daily. Please review completed homework assignments with your child. It is vital that students prepare for their quizzes, projects and tests.
