    8th Grade Math 

    8th Grad Math and Algebra I
       The new 8th grade math curriculum is very challenging and will prepare your student for high school math courses.  We will be covering many concepts including algebraic expressions and equations, geometry, algebraic functions, the number system, and data analysis and probability. The PSSA that assesses these concepts is given in April.  
       Select students who show advanced reasoning skills in mathematics may also take Algebra I in 8th grade, which is taught by Miss Chelsea Crandall.  These students will be required to take the Keystone Algebra I State Test as well as the 8th grade math PSSA. They are also required to take both Math 8 and Algebra I to ensure that they have all necessary skills to be successful when taking their high school courses in the coming years. 

     All students will have two periods of math. 

     ****Please check google classroom for all homework assignments.  Students should check google classroom daily for their Get More Math assignment and any video links that will help them with the assignment, especially if they are absent.
