Information about what's going on in 8th grade math.
Students are learning about Real Numbers in class right now. This is so important, because kids use real numbers on a day to day basis. They will continue to do so as they get older.
For our first test, they will be responsible for basically three things:
1. Distinguishing between rational and irrational numbers.
2. Understanding that every rational number can be written as a fraction (including repeating decimals)
3. Estimating square roots
We are planning to test Thursday, Oct. 2nd.

This awesome website was found by a student It is so great in that it breaks down the common core standards (what the state requires me to teach), and displays videos to help explain the content.
For example, we are learning to estimate square roots. Your student can watch videos to help them practice this concept at home.
