Saskatchewan Curriculum - Grade 8 Mathematics

Number (N)

  • N8.1 Demonstrate understanding of the square and principle square root of whole numbers concretely or pictorially and symbolically.
  • N8.2 Expand and demonstrate understanding of percents greater than or equal to 0% (including fractional and decimal percents) concretely, pictorially, and symbolically.
  • N8.3 Demonstrate understanding of rates, ratios, and proportional reasoning concretely, pictorially, and symbolically.
  • N8.4 Demonstrate understanding of multiplying and dividing positive fractions and mixed numbers, concretely, pictorially, and symbolically.
  • N8.5 Demonstrate understanding of multiplication and division of integers concretely, pictorially, and symbolically.

Patterns and Relations (P)

  • P8.1 Demonstrate understanding of linear relations concretely, pictorially (including graphs), physically, and symbolically.
  • P8.2 Model and solve problems using linear equations of the form: ax = b
x/a = b, a ≠ 0
ax + b = c
x/a + b = c, a ≠ 0
a(x + b) = c
concretely, pictorially, and symbolically, where a, b, and c are integers.

Shape and Space (SS)

  • SS8.1 Demonstrate understanding of the Pythagorean Theorem concretely or pictorially and symbolically and by solving problems.
  • SS8.2 Demonstrate understanding of the surface area of 3-D objects limited to right prisms and cylinders (concretely, pictorially, and symbolically) by:
      • analyzing views
      • sketching and constructing 3-D objects, nets, and top, side, and front views
      • generalizing strategies and formulae
      • analyzing the effect of orientation
      • solving problems.
  • SS8.3 Demonstrate understanding of volume limited to right prisms and cylinders (concretely, pictorially, or symbolically) by:
      • relating area to volume
      • generalizing strategies and formulae
      • analyzing the effect of orientation
      • solving problems.
  • SS8.4 Demonstrate an understanding of tessellation by:
      • explaining the properties of shapes that make tessellating possible
      • creating tessellations
      • identifying tessellations in the environment.

Statistics and Probability (SP)

  • SP8.1 Analyze the modes of displaying data and the reasonableness of conclusions.
  • SP8.2 Demonstrate understanding of the probability of independent events concretely, pictorially, orally, and symbolically.
