According to the CCSS, eighth grade students should focus on three important areas:

a) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations including modeling as association in bivariate data with a linear equation, solving linear equations and systems of linear equations,

b) understanding the concept of a function and using functions to describe relationships,

c) analyzing geometrical figures using distance, angle, similarity and congruence, and understanding the Pythagorean Theorem.

The following mathematics practice sets of questions are designed to test the knowledge of eighth grade students. We are not afiliated with the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) or the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) which coordinate the CCSS initiative.

8th Grade Common Core Functions

8.F: Students need to define, evaluate and compare functions and to use functions to evaluate relationships between quantities.

8th Grade Common Core Number System

8.NS: Know that there are numbers that are not rational and approximate them by rational numbers.

8th Grade Common Core Expressions and Equations

8.EE: Students need to work with radicals and integer exponents, understand the relations between proportional relationships, lines and linear equations and analyze and solve linear equations.

8th Grade Common Core Statistics and Probability

8.SP: The 8.SP CCS standards require seventh grade students to use sampling to draw inferences, to draw informal comparative inferences about two populations and to investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.

8th Grade Common Core Geometry

8.G: Seventh grade students are expected to be able to understand congruence and similarity, understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem, and solve real-world and mathematical problems involving volumes of spheres, cones and cylinders.
