Kindra Ahrens

Welcome to 8th Grade Math! My name is Mrs. Ahrens and I look forward to exploring the world of mathematics with your student.

8th grade mathematics is about formulating and reasoning expressions and equations, grasping the concept of a function, and understanding the Pythagorean Theorem, (and much more!).

Students will:

  1. Understand the importance of exponents with scientific notation.
  2. Learn to multiply and divide exponents.
  3. Learn the Pythagorean Theorem and practice it in real-world applications.
  4. Analyze and solve linear equations and simultaneous linear equations.
  5. Understand congruence and similarity using physical models.

Please read the article by Joe Boaler to better understand my teaching philosophy.
