Eighth graders will begin solving mathematical equations and expressions involving polynomials. The skills we have used to combine like terms will carry over into this unit. We will further our understanding of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing a variety of problems using polynomials of different degrees.  To accomplish our goal of mastering these skills, students need to be putting one-hundred percent effort into everything they do. We will continue to work together and independently to learn the strategies being taught.
