Grade 8 Mathematics
Mathematical concepts and techniques are used in various contexts to solve problems. The mental processes involved in mathematics play a key role in enhancing accuracy, critical and logical thinking skills, as well as problem solving abilities. Having these skills is not only beneficial for mathematics, but this training of the brain contributes to decision making and problem solving across various subjects, in everyday life and in any career you may pursue later in life.
There are five core areas which are covered, namely:
Numbers, operations and relationships
Patterns, functions and algebra
Space and shape (geometry)
Whole numbers are a set of numbers including all natural numbers and 0. They are a part of real numbers that do not include fractions, decimals, or negative numbers. Counting numbers are also considered as whole numbers. Let us learn everything about whole numbers in this article.
Integers Part 1: Square and Cube Numbers
Today we will be looking at square and cube numbers! But wait there’s more! We won’t just be looking at the numbers but also how to work them out without using a calculator. Why you ask? Well because I think you can. Get your brain fired and let’s begin.
Integers Part 2
Let's take a look at what we are learning today. We’ve already looked at whole and natural numbers but now we are going to be looking at integers. Integers are negative numbers and whole numbers including zero.
Integers Part 3
This time we are going to be looking at integers and the order of operations.
Integers Part 4: Squaring and Cubing Integers
Know how to use BEDMAS (Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction) to find the square and cube roots of integers.
Common Fractions Part 1
In this lesson we will be looking at reciprocals, and division of common fractions. Alongside that, learn the squared & cubed powers along with the square and cube roots of common fractions.
Common fractions Part 2
In this lesson, we will learn about Common Fractions and we will focus on the reciprocals, and division of common fractions.By the end of this lesson, you will be able to carry out calculations with common fractions.
