You may use a graphing calculator throughout this course and on the final exam You. may use any type of calculator that is accepted for testing on the Texas STARR test. You will find this information on the Texas Education Agency website Most graphing. calculators are acceptable with the exception of those with a QWERTY keyboard. and or CAS system, You will need to be familiar with your own calculator Key stroke instructions will not. be provided because there are so many different kinds of calculators that can be used. Keep in mind that you need to have a positive attitude study hard read all the. assignments in your textbook and in this course and never be afraid to ask for help or. clarification Also some of the lessons in the textbook have a reference for online help. The online tutorials are a very helpful tool that you may want to use My goal for this. course is to empower each student with the knowledge and skills necessary to be. successful in their high school career I believe that a strong mathematical background. is one of the most powerful assets you can possess. Course Delivery Method, Contacting Your Instructor. You may contact your instructor through the Blackboard messaging system Technical. support is available 24 7 at www k12 ttu edu, Course TEKS and Objectives. The objectives for MATH 8 are in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills TEKS as. mandated by the Texas Education Agency Each lesson has stated objectives. After completing this course you should be able to. 1 express a rational number as a decimal, 2 approximate the value of an irrational number. 3 describe the relationship between sets of real numbers. 4 order a set of real numbers arising from mathematical and real world contexts. 5 convert between large and small numbers in standard decimal notation and. scientific notation, 6 represent linear proportional situations with tables graphs and equations in the.

form of y kx, 7 use data from a table or graph to determine the rate of change or slope and. y intercept in mathematical and real world problems. 8 graph proportional relationships interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the line. that models the relationship, 9 solve problems involving direct variation. 10 represent linear nonproportional situations with tables graphs and equations in. the form of y mx b when b 0, 11 use data from a table or graph to determine the rate of change or slope and. y intercept in real world problems, 12 distinguish between proportional and nonproportional situations using tables. graphs and equations in the form y kx and y mx b when b 0. 13 identify and verify the values of x and y that simultaneously satisfy two linear. equations in the form y mx b from the intersections of the graphed equations. 14 write an equation in the form y mx b to model a linear relationship between. two quantities using verbal numerical tabular and graphical representations. 15 contrast bivariate sets of data that suggest a linear relationship with bivariate sets. of data that do not suggest a linear relationship from a graphical representation. 16 identify functions using sets of ordered pairs tables mappings and graphs. 17 identify examples of proportional and nonproportional functions that arise from. mathematical and real world problems, 18 represent and determine angle relationships with angles formed by parallel lines.

that are cut by a transversal, 19 represent and determine angle relationships with the sum of the measures of the. angles of a triangle, 20 represent and determine angle relationships in similar triangles. 21 use models and diagrams to explain the Pythagorean Theorem. 22 use the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse to solve problems. 23 determine the distance between two points on a coordinate plane using the. Pythagorean Theorem, 24 describe the volume formula V Bh of a cylinder in terms of its base and area. and height, 25 model the relationship between the volume of a cylinder and a cone having both. congruent bases and height and connect that relationship to their volume. 26 solve problems involving the volume of cylinders cones and spheres. 27 make connections to the formulas for lateral and total surface area and. determine solutions for problems involving rectangular prisms and triangular. prisms and, 28 make connections to the formulas for lateral and total surface area and.

determine solutions for problems involving cylinders. MATH 8 addresses the required Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills TEKS These. can be found at the Texas Education Agency website.
