8th grade math lesson plans focused on the big ideas

Our curated series of Grade 8 math lessons is designed for students to complete over any 4 to 6-week summer program.

8th Grade Math - solving linear equations
8th graders learn to graph linear equations and compare functions with one variable
Digital lessons involve solving linear equations and proportional relationships on a coordinate plane

Linear Relationships

13 Lessons | Grade 8 Mission 3

The Grade 8 lessons focus on linear functions and linear equations, ensuring students have both the foundational understanding and procedural fluency needed to access the new learning of Algebra I. Students learn to recognize connections among rate of change, slope, and constant of proportionality.

8th grade math using linear equations and systems with multiple variables
Rising 9th grader students solve simultaneous linear equations and determine when there are no solutions

Linear Equations and Systems

15 Lessons | Grade 8 Mission 4

Students write and solve linear equations in one variable. These include equations in which the variable occurs on both sides of the equal sign, and equations with no solutions, exactly one solution, and infinitely many solutions.

Coming Soon: Summer 2022

Math for 8th graders focusing on functions and volume problem example.
8th grade students learn about independent and dependent variable functions
8th grade students discover the relationships between two variables with functions and volume

Functions and Volume

21 Lessons | Grade 8 Mission 5

Students are introduced to the concept of a function. These lessons enable students to develop a deep understanding of linear relationships and functions in addition to being able to manipulate algebraic equations and expressions.
