## Welcome to Mrs. Gould's 8th grade page

We will be using standards based grading so you will be tracking your success on standards throughout the year along with Mrs. Gould, which will be reported out at the end of each term. This is new to Mrs. Gould as well so we will do some learning together.

Work completion will affect you in two ways:

*your Howl ratings

*Only when work is completed, will students be allowed to retake assessments

It will be possible to retake assessments. Prior to having a second chance, you will be required to meet with Mrs. Gould to study as well as demonstrate that you have attempted all work associated with the assessment.

Topics you will learn:

*Solving equations

*Linear equations

*Exponents

*Pythagorean Theorem

*Data and Statistics

*Solving Systems of Equations

*Scientific Notation

*Geometry - angles, transformations, and circles
