Welcome to
Mr. Hilburt's Class!
8th Grade
PLEASE check planners each night for homework assignments and notices  about important papers being sent home.  I will sign it each night so you can be certain what is written is accurate.


8th grade students will be using the Holt Algebra I textbook with material supplemented by me to provide thorough coverage of essential pre-Algebra skills and Algebra basics.  Online access to the textbook will be provided.  Problem-solving strategies will be stressed so that students learn to become independent thinkers and problem-solvers.   The main Math topics we will be covering this year are The Number System, Expressions & Equations, Functions, Geometry, Slope, Integer Exponents, Polynomials, Statistics & Probability, and Quadratics.
