Mathematics 8, version 03 (Online)

This course was written to meet the Mathematics Grade 8 IRP released in 2008. The course builds on concepts from previous grades and introduces new skills. Skills include: working with 2-D and 3-D objects; creating tessellations; understanding and calculating squares and square roots; solving problems with the Pythagorean Theorem; understanding statistical graphs, working with linear equations including graphing and solving; multiplying and dividing fractions; working with percent; and calculating the probability of independent events.

Mathematics 8 consists of four modules with three sections in each module. Students send in an assignment at the end of each section, and each module has a module test or optional module project. The course has been written to include several media pieces such as demonstration videos and interactive media. (The Math 8 Media CD is optional for the online version of the course, however, online students may wish to order it if they do not have a high speed internet connection. It is ordered separately.) There is no textbook required. For a description of the module content, please refer to the Math 8 (Print) link at:

This course features a pretest at the beginning of each section. Students have the option of completing this pretest if they feel that they have a strong understanding of the concepts in the section. Another key feature of the course is the inclusion of the "Thinking Space." Each lesson throughout the course contains a space along the side of the page where students are encouraged to think beyond the course material as they read.

Please note that student term tests and teacher's guide (answer keys for section assignments and term tests) is available for this course.
