Eighth Grade Math Midterm Study Guide 2018
The math midterm will be given in two parts. This is the same format as the NYS Math Exam in May.
- Part One: Multiple Choice
- Part Two: Short and Extended Response Questions
The following topics will be assessed on the midterm:
- Writing numbers in exponential notation
- Laws of Integer Exponents (See Eureka Lesson 5 Equation Reference Sheet)
- When multiplying numbers written with the same base, keep the base and add the powers
- When dividing numbers written with the same base, keep the base and subtract the powers
- When a power is raised to a power, keep the base and multiply the exponents
- When a base is raised to the zero power, the value of the expression is 1
- When an exponent is negative, rewrite the expression as a fraction with positive exponents
- Simplifying expressions using properties and laws of exponents
- Writing numbers in expanded form using exponential notation
- Substitution with expressions involving exponents
- Finding the smallest power of 10 that will exceed a number
- Estimating quantities using a single digit times a power of 10
- Writing standard numbers in scientific notation
- Writing numbers expressed in scientific notation in standard form
- Adding numbers expressed in scientific notation
- Subtracting numbers expressed in scientific notation
- Multiplying numbers expressed in scientific notation
- Dividing numbers expressed in scientific notation
- Determining how many times greater or smaller a number is using scientific notation
- Comparing numbers expressed in scientific notation
- Translating figures with and without the coordinate plane
- Writing and understanding a rule of a translation
- Reflecting figures with and without a coordinate plane
- Determining the coordinates of the image after a reflection over a line other than the x- and y-axis
- Rotating figures with and without a coordinate plane
- Using and understanding the rules for 90, 180, and 270 degree rotations clockwise and counterclockwise
- Determining when figures are congruent and what aspects of the figure remain the same to maintain congruency
- Use both the Eureka book and the EnVision books to help you study the concepts listed above.
- Review your notes from your math notebook.
- Review all corrected math worksheets and completed examples, exercises, and problem sets.
