Welcome to 8th Grade Math with Mr. Garcia

state fair 8th team

This is going to be a very exciting and busy year! All I expect from every student is to


In 8th grade math we will:

  • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
  • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
  • Model with mathematics.
  • Use appropriate tools strategically.
  • Use appropriate terminology when referring to the number system, functions, geometric figures, and data displays.
  • Examine patterns in tables and graphs to generate equations and describe relationships. (Deductive Reasoning)
  • Use repeated reasoning to understand algorithms and make generalizations about patterns. (Inductive Reasoning)

Students, can earn a free dress day by scoring 80% or better on unit tests as well as galileo tests. Home work is assigned every night.
