• ## Hello , welcome to 8th Accelerated Math!

The Mathematics Department at Riverwatch Middle School follows the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) for this Accelerated CCGPS Coordinate Algebra/Analytic Geometry A course (Prerequisite: Successful completion of Accelerated 7th grade math or Advanced 8th grade math)

This is the first in a sequence of mathematics courses designed to ensure that students are prepared to take higher‐level mathematics courses during their high school career, including Advanced Placement Calculus AB, Advanced Placement Calculus BC, and Advanced Placement Statistics.

Listed below are the detailed pieces of the 8th grade Accelerated course.

 Accelerated Reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems Interpret the structure of expressions Create linear and exponential equations that describe numbers or relationships Understand solving equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning Solve equations and inequalities in one variable and systems of linear equations Represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically Understand the concept of a function and use function notation Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context Analyze functions using different representations Reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems Interpret the structure of expressions Create linear and exponential equations that describe numbers or relationships Understand solving equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning Solve equations and inequalities in one variable and systems of linear equations Represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically Understand the concept of a function and use function notation Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context Analyze functions using different representations
