Parents, please note that these standards are listed in the order, and for the amount of time, that most Beyond Textbooks schools follow. These are guidelines, and your child's school may vary. 

Benchmark 1:

  1. 8.M.EE.A.02: I can use square roots and cube roots to evaluate expressions and solve equations involving perfect squares and perfect cube roots. - 5 days
  2. 8.M.NS.A.02: I can estimate the value of an irrational number and locate it on a number line. - 10 days
  3. 8.M.EE.C.07: I can solve linear equations in one variable using the distributive property and by combining like terms. - 10 days
  4. 8.M.F.A.03: I can identify linear and nonlinear functions. - 10 days
  5. 8.M.F.B.05: I can describe the relationship between two quantities on a graph. I can graph a relationship between two quantities. - 10 days
  6. 8.M.G.A.05: I can use informal arguments to prove relationships of angles and triangles formed by parallel lines cut by a transversal. - 5 days

Benchmark 2:

  1. 8.M.EE.B.05: I can graph and interpret proportional relationships between two quantities. I can compare two proportional relationships represented in different ways.    - 10 days
  2. 8.M.F.A.02: I can compare two functions represented in different ways. - 20 days
  3. 8.M.F.B.04: I can model linear relationships using equations, graphs, ordered pairs, tables, or written descriptions. - 20 days
  4. 8.M.SP.A.01: I can create and interpret scatter plots and find associations between two quantities. - 15 days
  5. 8.M.SP.A.03: I can use a linear model to interpret the slope and y-intercept. - 15 days
  6. 8.M.SP.A.04: I can construct and interpret a two way table. - 15 days

Benchmark 3:

  1. 8.M.EE.A.01: I can use the properties of exponents to simplify and order numerical expressions. - 10 days
  2. 8.M.EE.A.04: I can perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation. I can recognize scientific notation that has been generated by technology. - 10 days
  3. 8.M.EE.C.08: I can analyze and solve pairs of linear equations. - 15 days
  4. 8.M.G.B.07-08: I can use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems. I can use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points. - 10 days

Benchmark 4:

  1. 8.M.G.C.09: I can find the volume of a cone, cylinder, or sphere. - 10 days
  2. 8.M.G.A.03: I can describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates. - 10 days
  3. 8.M.G.A.04: I can describe a transformation given two similar figures. - 10 days


Additional Standards:

  1. 8.M.NS.A.01: Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand informally that every number has a decimal expansion; for rational numbers show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually, and convert a decimal expansion which repeats eventually into a rational number. (Month 1 & 2)
  2. 8.M.EE.B.06: I can use similar triangles to explain why slope is the same between any two points on a line. I can write the equation for a line segment using y=mx + b. (Month 4)
  3. 8.M.F.A.01: Understand that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. The graph of a function is the set of ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding output. (Function notation is not required in Grade 8.) (Month 4)
  4. 8.M.SP.A.02: Know that straight lines are widely used to model relationships between two quantitative variables. For scatter plots that suggest a linear association, informally fit a straight line, and informally assess the model fit by judging the closeness of the data points to the line. (Month 5)
  5. 8.M.EE.A.03: Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other. For example, estimate the population of the United States as 3×108 and the population of the world as 7×109, and determine that the world population is more than 20 times larger. (Month 7)
  6. 8.M.G.B.06: Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.         (Month 8)
  7. 8.M.G.A.01: Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations: 1. Lines are taken to lines, and line segment to line segments of the same length. 2. Angles are taken to angles of the same measure. 3. Parallel lines are taken to parallel lines. (Month 10)
  8. 8.M.G.A.02: Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them. (Month 10)
