: 8th Grade March 2019
The eighth grade is looking forward to our field trip to Washington, D.C. on March 28th to visit the Smithsonian Museum of American History, The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and monuments around the National Mall. We will be leaving TEMS at 6:30AM and will return to Conestoga High School around 8:30PM. Permission slips went home on February 27th and are due back by March 11th.
English
The eighth grade English classes are continuing the Holocaust literature unit in March and will be engaging in Socratic seminars as a culminating activity. We will begin Romeo and Juliet in the middle of the month. Journaling and vocabulary work are continuing.
American History
This month students will study the far-reaching consequences of the political and economic decisions made by Andrew Jackson during his two terms as president. Students will experience a special presentation by a guest speaker on President Andrew Jackson.
Science
Science classrooms are finishing their exploration of chapter 6 in the Motion, Forces and Energy book, Thermal Energy and Heat. Once completed, we will begin chapter 1 of the Inside Earth text. We will be looking at the layers of the Earth, from the core to the crust. Investigations include how the Earths plates arrived at their current location and what it is that moved them. After plate tectonics, the science classes will investigate earthquakes and volcanoes.
Math:
Pre-Algebra
Students just finished a unit on Area and Volume and are now working on Geometric Transformations.
Algebra
Students just completed a unit on Quadratic Equations and how to solvegraphically, using the quadratic formula and by using radicals.Our current unit is focused on how to factor a quadratic and then go on to solve a quadratic equation using factoring.
Geometry
Students are utilizing their knowledge of right triangles and trigonometry to determine the surface area of plane figures. Moving forward, these concepts will be further developed in the exploration of space figures.
Algebra 2
Students are completing the unit on exponential functions and logarithms. Applications in science and finance were explored. The next unit focuses on Rational Equations and their applications.
Math Analysis
Students have just finished a unit on logarithms and exponential functions. They will now be moving onto a unit dealing with the graphing of parametric and polar equations. Their studies will include a conics review. Students will learn about how parametric equations work and their practical applications. They will also study polar equations and polar graphing.
Study Skills 8
Eighth grade students will develop critical thinking skills by exploring questioning strategies. Students will be introduced to the levels of questions as presented in Blooms Taxonomy. Next, students will practice formulating their own questions about a class novel. Questions developed by students will be used for written responses and will serve as a basis for classroom discussion. Vocabulary study, daily grammar review, and biweekly PSSA practice will continue throughout the month.
