Welcome to 8th Grade Math!

  • Everyone can learn math to the highest levels. There is no such thing as a "math"person. Everyone can reach the highest levels they want to with hard work.

  • Mistakes are valuable. Mistakes grow your brain! It is good to struggle and make mistakes.

  • Questions are really important. Always ask questions, always answer questions. Ask yourself: why does that make sense?

  • Math is about creativity and making sense. Math is a very creative subject about visualizing patterns and creating solution paths that others can see, discuss, and critique.

  • Math is about connections and communicating. Math is a connected subject and a form of communication. Represent math in different forms like words, pictures, graphs, equations, and link them.

  • Math class is about learning not performing. Math is a growth subject, it takes time to learn and it is all about effort.

  • Depth is more important than speed. Many top mathematicians think slowly and deeply.
