Syllabus
8th Grade Mathematics
Teacher: Mrs. Wolfe Cicely Tyson Middle/High School
School phone number: (973) 414-8600
Room Number: 308
Teachers e-mail address: tyesha.wolfe@eastorange.k12.nj.us
Introduction
Welcome to Grade 8 Mathematics. Im your instructor, Ms. Wolfe. Well be together for the 2018-2019 school year. In this course, well utilize the Go Math textbook and other resources to help you master the New Jersey Learning Standards (NJSLS). Students are expected to use mathematical practices to demonstrate their learning and understanding of concepts as we cover areas such as the number system, equations and expressions, functions, geometry and statistics and probability
Course Theme
There is no such thing as a math person. Everyone can do well at math if they practice and study it- Jo Boaler
Course Goals/Essential Questions
Connect math to the real world
Reason abstractly and qualitatively
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
Formulate and reason about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations
Grasp the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships
Analyze two-- and three-- dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem
Methods of Instruction
Instruction will be differentiated to meet the needs of all students. Students will explore learning through whole group and small groups instruction. Visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning strategies will be used to enhance students level of understanding. Prior knowledge will be activated and scaffolding used to help students meet their goals. Hands on activities and collaboration will take place to help students make real world connections.
Classroom Expectation
Student are expected to:
Be on time
Be seated in your assigned seat, start Do now
If youre late, make sure you have a pass and go to your set silently
Be prepared for class
Bring your notebook (one will also be provided), sharpened pencils, folder
Complete all homework assignments prior to class
Participate in all class activities and complete all assignments
Show all work on homework, classwork, quizzes, test, etc.
Be respectful
a. Respect yourself, your classmates, your teacher, and school property
Pay attention to all lessons
Follow all school rules ( no food, drinks or cellphones should be out)
If you want a thing done well, do it yourself -Napoleon Bonaparte. Do not submit work that is not your own. Plagiarism and cheating will get you a zero and other disciplinary actions may be taken.
Attendance and Make-Up Work
If you are absent, it is your responsibility to make up all missed work. This includes notes, quizzes, tests and homework. Any work not made up by the end of the marking period will become a zero. You may need to ask a classmate for the notes. Homework can only be late if your are absent because we will have gone over it.
Absences are recognized for the following reasons:
Absences to participate in official school/district activities (performances, field trips, athletic events, etc.)
Absences for medical reasons
College Visits
Pass indicating with Administrator/Guidance/Nurse/CST/Social Worker/Discipline
Passes indicating you are with another teacher must be cleared first by the period teacher if you are planning to be more than 10 min. late.
Course Requirements and Grading
Grading Policy:
Homework 15%
Classwork 15%
Projects 20%
Quiz 20%
Test 30%
Biweekly assessment are given every other Wednesday starting from September 26th
Participation (raising your hand, asking and answering questions, volunteering to show work on board) is expected from every student every day.
Homework is assigned almost daily and will be collected and graded
There will be 2 projects. Rubrics for scoring will be provided when given the assignment. The first project (PBL) should be assigned by Nov.1st for a full year courses.
Opportunities for Extra Support
I am here to help! Extra help will be provided upon request and take place after
school.

Quarterly/Unit Schedule
Topics: Exponents, Expressions, and Equations
Quarter/Unit I Dates:9/6/18 10/30/18
Apply the properties of integer exponents to write equivalent numerical expressions. 8. EE.A.1
Estimate and express the values of very large or very small numbers with numbers expressed in the form of a
single digit times an integer power of 10. Compare numbers expressed in this form, expressing how many times
larger or smaller one is than the other. 8.EE.A.3
Perform operations using numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimals
and scientific notation are used. In real-world problem-solving situations, choose units of appropriate size for measurement of very small and very large quantities and interpret scientific notation generated when technology has been used for calculations. 8.EE.A.4
Graph proportional relationships, interpreting slope as unit rate, and compare two proportional relationships, each represented in different ways. 8.EE.B.5
Derive the equation of a line (y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx +b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b) and use similar triangles to explain why the slope (m) is the same between any two points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane. 8.EE.B.6
Model a linear relationship by constructing a function from two (x,y) values. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of the linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values. 8.F.B.4
Represent a rational number with its decimal expansion, showing that it eventually repeats, and convert such decimal expansions into rational numbers. 8.NS.A.1
Use rational numbers to approximate irrational numbers, locate irrational numbers on a number line, and estimate the value of expressions containing irrational numbers. 8.NS.A.2

Unit I Test Assigned the week of 10/31/18-11/6/18
Topics: Functions, Equations and Solutions
Quarter/Unit II Dates: 11/13/18-1/8/19
Compare two functions each represented in a different way (numerically, verbally, graphically, and algebraically) and draw conclusions about their properties (rate of change and intercepts). 8.F.A.2
Classify functions as linear or non-linear by analyzing equations, graphs, and tables of values; interpret the equation y = mx + b as defining a linear function. 8.F.A.3
Model a linear relationship by constructing a function from two (x,y) values. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of the linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values. 8.F.B.4
Derive the equation of a line (y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx +b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b) and use similar triangles to explain why the slope (m) is the same between any two points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane. 8.EE.B.6
Apply the distributive property and collect like terms to solve linear equations in one variable that contain rational numbers as coefficients. Use an equivalent equation of the form x = a, a = a, or a = b (where a and b are different
