Making Math Meaningful - An 8th Grade Workbook Teacher's Edition


In this last year before high school, the students’ natural interest in mathematics is beginning to peak. They need to be challenged, and the two topics in this workbook do exactly that. Instead of the teacher giving all of the rules and laws to the students, the group worksheets lead them to discover much of this for themselves.

Developmentally, the student is on an emotional roller coaster. The eighth grader can easily get frustrated, yet working through frustration teaches determination and builds confidence.

The seven units in this eighth grade workbook are:

  • Number Bases
  • Pythagorean Theorem
  • Mensuration
  • Percents & Growth
  • Proportions and Dimensional Analysis
  • Algebra
  • End-of-year Review
