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.

Course Content:

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
