8th Grade Algebra Ms. Eddy The curriculum for 8th grade Algebra students utilizes mathematical concepts learned in 6th and 7th grades, while introducing new concepts needed in preparation for high school. (This class counts as a high school credit, only for students earning 84% or above. This A or B does count as part of their high school GPA.) One of the most important aspects of any middle school class is practice. Class work and homework are utilized to provide this practice; it is essential that all students complete assignments on time. Keeping up with the pace of the class is the next most important ingredient for success. Please encourage your son or daughter to seek extra help as soon as something is unclear. I encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns.
