Hello My Name Is

Dr. Joyce Busch

I teach Math 6, Math 7 and Pre-algebra in the Middle School. I'm also a certified ESOL teacher and taught in Manassas City prior to joining PWCS.

Grade 8 Pacing Guide



Welcome back from Spring Break!! I will be sending out emails on Monday the 13th explaining how to improve your Math grade. Please watch your PWCS e-mails for more information. Also I recommend that you take a look at your grades in StudentVue. We'll need that information, too!

Unit Learning Objectives

Math 6
(Unit 6)

6.7  The student will derive π (pi); solve problems, including practical problems, involving circumference and area of a circle; and solve problems, including practical problems, involving area and perimeter of triangles and rectangles.
6.8 The student will identify the components of the coordinate plane; and identify the coordinates of a point and graph ordered pairs in a coordinate plane.

6.9
  The student will determine congruence of segments, angles, and polygons.

Math 7
(Unit 6)

7.6  The student will compare and contrast quadrilaterals based on their properties; and determine unknown side lengths or angle measures of quadrilaterals.
7.7 The student will apply translations and reflections of right triangles or rectangles in the coordinate plane.

Pre-algebra
(Unit 7)

8.15 The student will determine whether a given relation is a function; and determine the domain and range of a function. 
8.16 The student will recognize and describe the graph of a linear function with a slope that is positive, negative, or zero; specifically, the student will identify the slope and y-intercept of a linear function, given a table of values, a graph, or an equation in y = mx + b form; determine the independent and dependent variable, given a practical situation modeled by a linear function; graph a linear function given the equation in y = mx + b form; and make connections between and among representations of a linear function using verbal descriptions, tables, equations, and graphs.
