Middle Grade Math: Building a solid foundation
Why Is It Important?
8th grade math is the first in a series of higher-level math classes students need to succeed in college and life. Students who have not developed a solid math foundation struggle to score high on the ACT and may end up needing remedial math courses in college, which makes getting a degree a longer, costlier process than it is for their more prepared classmates. The message is clear: It's easier to learn the math now than to relearn it later.
