MATHEMATICS GRADE 8
Mr. Donald M. Benker
Dear Students, Parents and/or Guardians:
Welcome to the start of a new school year. We are excited about being back in the classroom and are looking forward to a great year! Students will be studying mathematics out of the enVisionmath 2.0 and working directly according to the New York State Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Lessons will focus on problem-solving situations that help students to solve real-life problems and communicate their reasoning and strategies.
The kinds of problems that the students will work on may be more challenging and interesting than those they have encountered in the past. Our main goal is to help our students to be successful in mathematics and to take them to the “next level” as they continue mathematics in the middle school, high school, and beyond.
