Math 8

Miss Raymond's Math 8

 

Welcome to 8th grade math!!  This year we will be expanding on many of the skills that you have learned in previous grades.  We will be working with algebra, geometry, measurements, number sense and operation, many types of problem solving techniques, we will be starting trigonometry, and doing a unit on translations as well.  We will do many different and creative projects this year that will we be able to display on our boards outside and inside the classroom!  I look forward to starting this fun year having a blast while doing this projects with  you!!

 

 Homework:

Each day I will post your homework on this Math 8 link, so make sure you check this site every night to see what is for homework.   I also have an upcoming assignments section so you know if there is a test or project coming up anytime soon.  I promise, no big surprises here!! :)

 

Homework is always due next class day, unless otherwise noted by me.  It is also your responsibility, if you have any questions, to ask them before the assignment is due.  Have fun!!!!!
