Mr. Joshua Kozar
Prince William County Public Schools is pleased to provide you with a list of the mathematics objectives for grade 8. These are the same as the eighth grade Standards of Learning (SOLs) set by the State of Virginia. Students in this course will take the Grade 8 SOL test in the spring.
The content of the mathematics standards supports the following five goals for students:
- becoming mathematical problem solvers,
- communicating mathematically both orally and in writing,
- reasoning mathematically,
- making mathematical connections, and
- representing ideas mathematically.
Concepts are introduced and developed through the use of various models and representations. Students apply the concepts and skills through a wide variety of problem-solving experiences. Instruction in the process of problem solving is integrated early and continually throughout the mathematics curriculum strands.
The Prince William County Curriculum contains six content strands:
- Number and Number Sense
- Computation and Estimation
- Probability and Statistics
- Patterns, Functions, and Algebra
