Grade 8 math is critical because it prepares the student for high school math, which is a large leap from elementary school math, especially for those who scored 75% or lower. Many new math concepts are introduced, such as linear equations, quadratics and geometry.
The key is the foundation skills: integers, fractions, algebra, order of operations. Many children have gaps in these area and often times ignore them, simply because the tests aren’t rigorous enough to spot these gaps. In addition, your child should begin to tackle word problems, problem solving, which translate to application and thinking problems in high school. Building a good foundation in grade 7 and 8 will make the transition much easier into high school, and strengthen your child’s confidence.
