Current Gr. 8 Themes  Operations with Integers
 Building on Gr. 6 and 7 learning, Gr. 8 students work with problems involving all four operations. Last year, during Gr. 7, it was only addition and subtraction with the final two operations add this year. That also means that problems might include the need to follow order of operations rules.
 In some ways, Gr. 8 Integer learning is easier than Gr. 7 since it just extends a concept rather than introduces it. If a student is comfortable with operations learned in Gr. 35, they should find success.
key terms: associative property, communicative property
number line generator  create number lines to help solve problems
