**Class Description:**

*The 8th Grade Math Core Class is a standards-focused,*

student-centered program in which students will approach mathematical concepts

in the following ways: directed for basic mathematics principle including

examples and practice, guided through a combination of direct instruction and

investigatory learning, investigative activities that allow students to explore

and discover mathematics concepts through a contextual setting. This course is

designed to meet mastery level of Kentucky’s Common Core Standards in the

following general categories: using linear equations and systems of linear

equations to solve a variety of problems, show a complete understanding of a

function, and apply their knowledge of distance and angles to perform

transformations to describe congruence and similarity.
