Grade 8 Pre-Algebra

For many students, math shows up as a collection of rules, formulas, and properties that they learn temporarily, forget quickly, and never use again. Students find mathematics meaningless if they don't see the connections.

HLN's Grade 08 Pre-Algebra covers algebraic expressions and integers, solving one-step equations and inequalities, area and volume, and linear functions.

Students of all levels benefit from the structured leveled set of exercises in the homework sections. First, students practice by example. Next, they apply the skills they have learned, and finally, students are challenged with problems that require them to apply concepts on an accelerated level. The Go For Help icon refers students back to examples for help on similar problems previously introduced in the chapter.
