# Math 8

This is the grade-level eighth grade mathematics course. The focus includes the following concepts:
• integer exponents and their properties, including scientific notation
• congruence and similarity using physical models, transparencies, or geometry software • Pythagorean Theorem
• proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations
• analyze and solve linear equations
• define, evaluate, and compare functions
• volume of cylinders, cones, and spheres
• relationships between quantities and investigate patterns of association in bivariate data
• classifying real numbers
The concepts taught in eighth grade math meet the expectations of the Nebraska State Math Standards. This class is a foundation for Algebra 1.
