  • It is extrememly important to be fluent with all math facts, multiplication, division, addition and subtraction.
  • Automaticity with facts is necessary for a seamless progression through mathematical benchmarks as well as real-world applications.
  • Parents - please help your students establish a regular practice schedule if they are not fluent with all facts, x, /, +, -. Use flashcards, on-line games, board games, written practice, and/or quiz verbally while riding in the car.
  • Integer rules and operations, as well as all aspects of working with fractions are extremely important as well.

8th grade math vocabulary:

If a term is not defined in our Glencoe mathbook series, it is probably because it is a term that was introduced at a previous grade level. Here is a link if you need to look up an unknown math term that is NOT in your math book glossary. This dictionary is illustrated and interactive! http://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/
