## Unit Outlines

Throughout the year we will be covering 14 different Units focused on different mathematical concepts and methods.

Throughout the year we will be covering 14 different Units focused on different mathematical concepts and methods.

The purpose of this course is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in grades 6 and 7. We will focus on 14 different Units that will center on the following topics.

The Number System

The Number System

- Know that there are numbers that are not rational, and approximate them by rational numbers.

- Work with radicals and integers exponents.
- Understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines and linear equations.
- Analyze and solve linear equations and pair of simultaneous linear equations.

- Define, evaluate, and compare functions.
- Use functions to model relationships between quantities.

- Understand congruence and similarity using physical models, transparencies, and geometry software.
- Understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem.
- Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving volumes of cylinders, cones and spheres.

- Investigate patterns of associations in bivariate data.
