Grade 8

The 8th graders have finished Chapter 2 in Math.   We learned about different types of transformations-translations, reflections, rotations, and dilations. We are now starting Chapter 3, Angles and Triangles.  We will be looking at the many types of angles that are formed when parallel lines are cut by a transversal.  We will be learning about corresponding angles, alternate interior angles, alternate exterior angles, and supplementary angles.  We will also learn about the interior angles of triangles and other polygons.

As always, please contact me with any questions or concerns.

The 8th Grade Students requested a tree that could be decorated for the holidays. Father Mike came through with this beautiful tree that the students have named Jerry in honor of Jerry Rechek. 


The 8th graders have finished Chapter 1 in Math.   We learned about how to solve many different types of equations from one-step, two-step, multi-step, variables on both sides, and solving for one variable in an equation with more than one variable.  We will continue to use these skills throughout the year in Math.

We have now started studying about different types of transformations-translations, reflections, rotations, and dilations. 

As always, please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Welcome back to Math class 8th grade families! Your child has been solving one-step equations and multi-step equations. Last year we worked on both of these but now this year we are using that prior knowledge and solving more challenging problems compared to last year. Both of these sections has enabled us to practice writing equations.
Please encourage your child to see me for any extra help, not only on the first chapter, but throughout the entire school year.
As always, any questions or concerns, please contact me.
