In Math 8 Part 2, students will focus on concepts that prepare them for Algebra, including solving multi-step equations, graphing lines, and interpreting slope. Students will also learn about angles, polygons, and volume of solid figures. In addition, students will learn about elementary statistics. Video tutorials, online math activities, and self-check web quizzes ensure students receive the visual and special instruction necessary to conceptualize these abstract concepts, better preparing them for advanced math courses.
It is recommended that students successfully complete Math 8 Part 1 or equivalent course work before enrolling in this course.
