       Math 8 is intended to serve two purposes. First, to review or extend concepts and skills learned in previous grades. Second, to prepare students for more abstract concepts in algebra and geometry. All students are expected to have prior knowledge of the concepts introduced in Math 7.  Math 8 is designed so that a student will meet the standards of learning set forth by the Commonwealth of Virginia.  The Standards of Learning (SOL) end of the course exam will be given at the end of Math 8.  Throughout the course, students will study the following topics:  number and number sense, computation, estimation, measurement, geometry, probability, statistics, patterns, functions, and algebra.
