Virginia Standards of Learning
8th Grade
Computation and Estimation:
8.3 The student will solve practical problems involving rational numbers, percents, ratios, and proportions. Problems will be of varying complexities and will involve real-life data, such as finding a discount and discount prices and balancing a checkbook.
Lesson  (...)
Lesson: Students learn how to convert from fractions to decimals.

Lesson: Introduces students to fractions and explores basic mathematical operations with fractions, comparing fractions, and converting fractions into decimals or percents.

Lesson: Introduction and fine points of using bar graphs and histograms.

Lesson: Introduces students to simple probability concepts.

Lesson: Introduces students to length, perimeter and area.

Lesson: Students practice arithmetic skills. Can be tailored for practice of all types of single operation arithmetic ranging from simple addition to operations with integers and decimals.

Activity  (...)
Activity: Create a game spinner with variable sized sectors to look at experimental and theoretical probabilities. Parameters: Sizes of sectors, number of sectors, number of trials.

Activity: Experiment with the outcome distribution for a roll of two dice by simulating a dice throwing game. Parameters: Which player wins with which total rolled.

Activity: Visualize fractions by coloring in the appropriate portions of either a circle or a square, then order those fractions from least to greatest. Fraction Sorter is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Measure angles, distances, and areas in several different images (choices include maps, aerial photos, and others). A scale feature allows the user to set the scale used for measuring distances and areas.

Activity: Step through the tortoise and hare race, based on Zeno's paradox, to learn about the multiplication of fractions and about convergence of an infinite sequence of numbers.
