This bundle includes all three Grade 8 Mathematics Books.
Book I - more than 540 practice items and activities that help students learn The Number System and Expressions and Equations. Book II - more than 350 practice items and activities that help students learn Functions and Statistics and Probability. The custom-developed book provides an easy-to use tool for teachers and parents to help students master the rigorous mathematics standards. Book III - more than 300 practice items and activities that help students learn Geometry.
The custom-developed book provides an easy-to use tool for teachers and parents to help students master the rigorous mathematics standards. The Teacher Guide Section includes a complete answer key and help for the teacher or parent.
The content for each grade level is divided into three volumes, with each volume focusing on a different set of standards. Each volume provides numerous examples that include clear, concise explanations for new topics or skills and varied approaches for problem solving. A complete answer key and help for the teacher or parent can be found in the Teacher Guide Section.
Emphasizing critical areas of understanding, the questions and prompts encourage discussion of both the learning tasks and problem-solving methods. Open-ended and extended-response tasks challenge students to do more than find the right answers. For easy reference, the complexity level and related mathematics standards for each activity are clearly identified.
Each work text presents topics in an interesting, conversational tone for students. At the same time, however, each work text also emphasizes the importance of knowing and using precise mathematical vocabulary. As students work through each work text, they will have many and varied opportunities to learn and practice the eight key Standards for Mathematical Practices, as well. Students who know and practice these important processes and proficiencies develop the kind of mathematical competencies they will need and use throughout their lives.
Book I contains 144 pages, Book II contains 128 pages, and Book III contains 128 pages - TestSMART® Mathematics Work Text includes repeated opportunities for students to apply the mathematical practices (e.g., reasoning abstractly and quantitatively) identified in the Standards for Mathematics. The research-based content in this book builds higher-level thinking and problem-solving skills.
The Teacher Guide Section includes a comprehensive answer key and many helpful extras for the teacher or parent who will be working with students. These extras include a master skills list, an explanation of Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, a list of mathematics manipulative tools, instructional and learning strategies, mathematics vocabulary, a reference list, and much more.
