Grade 8 Math
8.EE.7 Analyze and solve linear equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations.
Here is the state standard on which your child is currently working in Algebra.
8.EE.7a Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form x = a, a = a, or a = b results (where a and b are different numbers).
8.EE.7b Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.
A-REI.1 Explain each step in solving a simple equation as following from the equality of numbers asserted at the previous step, starting from the assumption that the original equation has a solution. Construct a viable argument to justify a solution method.
A-REI.3 Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters
These standards will change as we move on to new material. Please check back often!
We encourage conversations about these standards so you can monitor your child's progress and understanding more effectively.
