• Grade 8: Pre-Algebra

    In Grade 8, instructional time should focus on three critical areas: (1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and
    equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of
    linear equations; (2) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; (3) analyzing
    two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying
    the Pythagorean Theorem.
