This 8th Grade Math STAAR Review contains all of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) that are covered on the standardized test for the state of Texas . All the TEKS are listed at the top of each page. There is a special activity at the end of each review that can be used as an assessment or as a way to bring everything together. Each of the objectives are also sold separately in my store. See the links to view each one. This review would be perfect for camps, individualized tutoring or classroom review sessions. If you are from another state, I've listed what is contained in each objective below:
TEKS Objective 2: Sets and subsets of numbers, approximating irrational numbers, scientific notation and ordering real numbers.
TEKS Objective 3: Setting up proportions, comparing a shape and its dilation, using algebraic representation to show a dilation.
TEKS Objective 4: Using similar right triangles to develop an understanding of slope, interpreting unit rate as slope in proportional relationships, determining rate of change, slope or y-intercept for a table or graph.
TEKS Objective 5: Multiple-reps, proportional and non-proportional linear relationships, scatter plots and predictions, direct variation, content literacy, functions and non-functions.
TEKS Objective 6: Plugging into the volume of a cylinder without solving, comparing the volume of a cylinder and a cone, using models to demonstrate Pythagorean Theorem.
TEKS Objective 7: Volume of cylinders, cones and spheres, lateral and total surface area of rectangular prisms, triangular prisms and cylinders, Pythagorean Theorem and its converse, finding distance using Pythagorean Theorem.
TEKS Objective 8: Setting up and solving equations/inequalities with variables on both sides, writing a real-life scenario from a given equation, establishing facts about these geometry concepts: parallel lines cut by a transversal, angle sum and exterior angle theorems of triangles and AA similarity problems.
TEKS Objective 9: Not a part of the STAAR test.
TEKS Objective 10: Understanding of transformations, study of which transformations preserve congruence, writing algebraic representations for transformations, effect on linear and area measurements when shapes are dilated.
TEKS Objective 11: Determining if a scatterplot has an association, mean absolute deviation, random sampling questions.
TEKS Objective 12: Simple interest and compound interest, analyzing the effects of interest rate and loan length, analyzing how money grows over time, making financially responsible decisions, advantages and disadvantages of different payment methods, estimating the cost of college.
