Grade 8 Mathematics
4 Seasons
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)
Measurement
Data handling

Transformation Part 1
Episode 2
Here we will learn more about transformation with focus on the reflecting point, in the Xaxis, or Yaxis. By the end of this lesson, you will be able to recognize, describe, and perform transformation with points, on a coordinate plane.

06:32Episode 3
Transformation Part 2
Episode 3
Continuing on transformation, we will focus on reflecting a point, in the X and Y axis. By the end of this lesson, you will be able to recognize, describe, and perform transformation, with points on a coordinate plane.

06:48Episode 4
Theorem of Pythagoras Part 1
Episode 4
Moving onto Theorem of Pythagoras, we will focus on the relationship between the lengths of the sides of a rightangled triangle. By the end of this lesson, you will be able to carry out calculations, with Theorem of Pythagoras.

06:16Episode 5
Theorem of Pythagoras Part 2
Episode 5
We will focus on, using the Theorem to calculate a missing length, in a rightangled triangle. By the end of this lesson, you will be able to apply Theorem of Pythagoras, to solve any problems.
