Welcome to 8th Grade Algebra! We have a lot of learning to do this year. Please reference the school website for weekly assignments and activities. Students will need to spend additional time studying their class journals and notes in order to retain the information learned. Please see below for the topics that will be covered this year.
If you have any questions, please contact me at ssaaty@stmarys-temple.org.
I look forward to a great year!
