Mrs. Tinik’s Update - May
Grade 8th Math
Students just began working on Topic 7 the last week of April. This topic only has 4 lessons, so we should complete it by the end of the month. Topic 7 focuses on extending the knowledge of right triangles from Grade 7 to exploring the Pythagorean Theorem and applying the Pythagorean Theorem to solve real-world or mathematical problems.
Students will determine the unknown side lengths of a right triangle. Students will continue their learning and apply the Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem to identify right triangles. They will use that knowledge to solve application problems. They further extend the practice by finding the distance between two points on a coordinate plane. The distance can be used to find the missing point on a coordinate plane.
NJSLA Testing will be done during the week of May 6th to May 10th. Please get plenty of rest, eat a good breakfast and arrive to school on time.
