### 8th Grade Math to Honors Math 1

 If you have just completed 8th grade math and are planning to take Honors Math 1, there are some math concepts that you may need to brush up on.  Below you will find a list of the topics that were covered on the skills assessment that you took at the end of the year.  If your assessment results show that you need to do some additional practice in an area, then use the links for that concept to revisit that topic. Please contact the high school Guidance Office to schedule your follow-up assessment.List of Topic for Preparation for Math I - Honors•Topics that need you need to be comfortable with before entering Math 1-Honors•Topics that will be taught in Math 1 -HonorsComputations Work:Computation - positive/negative integerson-line practice http://classroom.jc-schools.net/basic/math-integ.htmlon-line practice: http://www.learningkeys.com/index.jsp (has levels and solutions)overall explanation - basic: http://www.factmonster.com/ipka/A0876848.htmlmultiplying and dividing integers: http://www.math.com/school/subject1/lessons/S1U1L12GL.htmlinteger jeopardy: http://www.math-play.com/Integers-Jeopardy/Integers-Jeopardy.htmlcheck out this site for appropriate activities: http://www.homeschoolmath.net/online/integers.phpComputation - order of operationsbasic explanation: PEMDAS on Math is Funin depth: Explanation on Let's Play Math blogYoutube video explanationPEMDAS songFractions Work:FractionsFractions - Khan Academy - there are a number of lessons and practice problems that you can use for all operations with fractions.  Either use the search option or scroll down to the Developmental Math section.http://www.mathsisfun.com/worksheets/fractions.php - great worksheets for practice (they have answers, too); go to the fraction section of Math is Fun for explanations and examples; we can also find worksheets for percentsPercents Work: Percentshttp://www.mathsisfun.com/worksheets/percents.php - great worksheets for practice (with answers, too)www.khanacademy.org - there are a number of lessons and practice problems that you can use for all operations with percents.  Either use the search option or scroll down to the Developmental Math sectionIntroduction to Algebra Work:Introduction to 1 variable algebra: http://www.purplemath.com/modules/polydefs2.htmSolving 1 variable equations- basicvideos that explain solutions to problems: http://www.khanacademy.org/video/simple-equations?playlist=Algebra   This is a good resource on seeing how to solve basic equations.  You can also find exercises that are connected to this site.Introduction to Linear Equations Work:Introduction to Linear equations explanation of slope-intercept: http://www.zonalandeducation.com/mmts/functionInstitute/linearFunctions/new/lsif0.php explanation & practice: http://www.purplemath.com/modules/slope.htmexplore properties of a straight line graph: http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/straight_line_graph.htmlIntroduction to Geometry Work: Intro to Geometry - Pythagorean Theorem Intro to Geometry - Area and Perimeter of Triangles and Rectangles http://www.mathgoodies.com/lessons/toc_vol1.htmlMore Advanced Skills:Exponents  Multi-step equationsOther useful resources for the topics above:Kahn Academy: http://www.khanacademy.org/  Purple math: http://www.purplemath.com/index.htm Jeopardy games: http://www.math-play.com/math-jeopardy.html
