Eighth-grade math continues the coverage of basic math concepts that began with the seventh-grade math courses. MATH 037 covers the second half of the eighth-grade content. We will study topics such as analyzing triangles and the distance between points, finding the measure of angles formed by a transversal and polygons, using different transformations to move figures on a coordinate plane, determining if figures are similar or congruent using transformations, finding the volume and missing measures of various shapes (cylinders, cones, hemispheres, spheres, and composite figures), and interpreting two-way tables and scatter plots with trend lines.
Unit 1. Roots and the Pythagorean Theorem
Unit 2. Lines, Angles, and Polygons
Unit 3. Transformations
Unit 4. Similarity and Congruence
Unit 5. Volume
Unit 6. Bivariate Data
