## aSTEAM Village Virtual School 8th Grade Math Bundle

The purpose of the aSTEAM Village Virtual School Math Bundle is to provide families with a set of sequential lessons that are based on the local states and Common Core State Standards.

These lessons focus on three (3) critical areas:

(1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations;

(2) grasping the concept of a funstion and using functioning to describe quantitive relationships;

(3) analyzing two-dimensional and three-dimensionl space and figures using distance, angle, simularity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagrorean Theoream;

These challenging and engaging lessons provide opportunities for students to strengthen their understanding of these critical concepts.

Students will be empowered to learn at their own pace, to pause, think and discuss, to rewind or even go fast forward.

Students working towards mastery of these three (3) critical areas, students will be well-prepared for High School Algebra and Geometry topics this upcoming school year.
