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.
