FC: MAP Test Survival Guide: 8th Grade Mathematics

1: Welcome to my Mix Book technology curriculum project! The following MixBook is an example of what students might create and publish, following the directions found at the end of this MixBook, as a study guide for the MAP test. Technology is a powerful motivator for students. They can use their creativity to create different ways to study for the Map test. They will also be able to share these projects with other students, family, and friends. In addition to being viewed on-line, this Mixbook can be made into a hard copy which can be kept in the classroom for future students, put in the library to continue to use as a study aid, or taken home to for family and friends. - Alicia

3: Using fractions, decimals, and percents to solve problems by: Joseph and Maria | - "per cent" means "out of a hundred" - Percentages refer to fractions of a whole. For example, 50% is equal to 1/2; 25% is equal to 1/4; and 40% is equal to 2/5. Percent to Decimal Conversions: - When converting a percent to a decimal, you must place a decimal behind the number in the ones spot. Once you have placed the decimal, you must move it two places to the left. If there is already a decimal in the number, leave it there, and move it 2 spaces to the left. Examples: 27% = 0.27 104% = 1.04 0.5% = 0.005 (In this case, the decimal is already there.Now, all that is left is do is to move it 2 spaces to the left.) Percent to Fraction Conversions: - The words "per cent" mean out of a hundred. When we convert decimals to fractions, we read the problem as follows: 40% is 40 out of 100. Examples: 40/100. Once we have that, we can reduce the fraction : 40/100 = 20/50 = 10/25 = 2/5 Decimal to Percent Conversions: - When converting a decimal to a percent, you simply move the decimal 2 spaces to the right, and add a percent sign at the end of the new number. Examples: 0.33 = 33% 0.67 = 67% 0.357 = 35.7% 0.3 = 30%

5: Apply properties of operations to all rational numbers by Chad and Lisa | Properties of Operations | - When you are working with a multi-step problem, there is an order of operations that must be performed. You must always perform the parenthesis first, then the exponents, multiply, divide, add, and subtract. This is a rule that will always be applied when solving problems with many operations.

8: Use symbolic algebra to represent and solve problems that involve linear relationships by Josie and Sam. | Tips for solving word problems using algebra: 1- Read the problem carefully looking for clues and important information. 2- Look for clues to determine which math operation is needed. 3- Look for what is needed to solve the problem. 4- Use symbols such as "x" to find the missing information. 5- Eliminate non-essential information. 6- Draw sketches and models to represent the problem. 7- Is the word problem similar to a previous problem, if so, how was it solved? 8- Develop a plan based in the information given. 9- Carry out the problem using math operations. 10 - Review your answer, and check your work. 11- Work the answer backwards, starting with the answer, to see if you can come up with the original problem. 12- Do the inverse of what is being done to the variable. And remember, because it is an equation, what is being done to one side must be done to the other side.

9: Equations - solve for x: 3 + x = 11 5x = 25 x = 3 x - 4 = 14 3x + 2 = 17 7 x - 14 = 22 x + 7 = 13 3x + 7 = 21 7x - 21 = 14 4 5 3 Word Problems using algebra: 1) The Johnson's are planning a 3-day trip to the ocean, 332 miles away. They have \$216 to spend on food for the 3 of them. How much can they spend on food, per day? 2) Susie plans to film 4 seals at the zoo. The show is 15 minutes long, and she has 2 hours of film. How many shows can Susie tape? | Practice Problems | Practice Problems

10: To the right, is a sample lesson plan of which I would use to instruct my students on how to create a Mix Book in order to aid them in studying and preparing for their MAP tests.
