THE DISTRICT OFFICE SUMMER HOURS ARE
MONDAY - THURSDAY 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Math 8
Instructor: Mrs. Neuerburg   
Class Description:†

Eighth grade is an exciting time in the world of mathematics! This year students start putting together all their foundations of math to understand the basics of algebra. We are also focusing on growing a growth mindset which will show students the benefits of hard work. Some concepts that will be covered this year include solving multi step equations, graphing linear equations, angle relationships, and volume.†


Personal Expectations:†

In our class we will be using the Four Agreements to be our best selves every day.

1. Be Impeccable with your Word:
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak bad about yourself or to gossip about others.
2. Donít Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is based on their own experiences.† When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you wonít be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Donít Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment and regret.
