N/A

Domain - The Number System, Grade 8

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

Math.8.NS.A.1: Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand informally that every number has a decimal expansion; for rational numbers show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually, and convert a decimal expansion which repeats eventually into a rational number.

Metric Fun 71

Domain - Expressions and Equations, Grade 8

Work with radicals and integer exponents.

Math.8.EE.A.1: Know and apply the properties of integer exponents to generate equivalent numerical expressions. For example, 32 × 3–5 = 3–3 = 1/33 = 1/27.

Activity Page
Another Dimension 85

Understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations.

Math.8.EE.B.5: Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways. For example, compare a distance-time graph to a distance-time equation to determine which of two moving objects has greater speed.

Domain - Functions, Grade 8

Define, evaluate, and compare functions.

Math.8.F.A.2: Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions). For example, given a linear function represented by a table of values and a linear function represented by an algebraic expression, determine which function has the greater rate of change.

Service in the Park 31

Define, evaluate, and compare functions.

Math.8.F.A.1: Understand that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. The graph of a function is the set of ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding output.

Use functions to model relationships between quantities.

Math.8.F.B.4: Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change  and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (x, y) values, including reading these from a table or from a graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values.

Domain - Statistics and Probability, Grade 8

Investigate patterns of association in bivariate data.

Math.8.SP.A.1: Construct and interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data to investigate patterns of association between two quantities. Describe patterns such as clustering, outliers, positive or negative association, linear association, and nonlinear association.
