Welcome to this Mathematics Grade 8 course, module 4 of 5 on Measurement.
The aim of this course is for it to be taught in a 21st century mindset. The course is actually fun, it uses technology, the internet and general knowledge to better equip a student for real life applications.
This course is intended for absolutely age 12-14 years old whom already has a foundation phase understanding in Mathematics. This course is also suitable for any end of middle-school to start of High School (US) or Grade 7-9 (UK) teachers who want to improve upon classroom teaching methods.
This course is packed with 2+ hours of video content encouraging students to answer questions throughout the videos. There are 5 modules in total, this is module 4.
1. Numbers, Operations & Relationships.
2. Patterns, Functions & Algebra.
3. Space and Shape.
5. Data Handling.
The course has been broken into 5 modules to i) allow students to only enroll in what sections they are struggling with, ii) save the parent or student cost as each module is the price of a tutoring lesson and lastly, iii) to encourage students to break goals into bite-sized chunks. There is 16+ hours of video in all five modules.
This course is intended to be a resource to help students throughout the year, it can be completed slowly and referred to throughout your year of study. The course has been broken down into the following sub-sections, each containing their own set of videos:
In this video we going to look at the most basic of shapes to get an introduction and understand of how to find the area and perimeter of squares.
In this video we are going to extend our squares into rectangles and look at the properties that rectangles possess
This video is going to go into detail how to find the area of a triangle, no matter what the type. It is going to specifically talk about why it is half the area of a similar rectangle.
This video is going to introduce students to the ratio pi, and talk about how it is used to find the circuference and area of a circle.
In this video we are going to talk about converting of measurement units, this is a very important video to give a student a practical understanding of scale.
This is the cherry on top as it deals with how to practically apply area, and circuference into real life problem solving as we carefully work through some examples.
This video forms the foundation of how to solve 3D volumes and Surface Areas.
Previously we had solve the surface area and volume of a cube, this video will take us into how to extend this theory to solve for a rectangular prisim.
In this video we are going to be solving the surface area and volume of a triangular prism, this can be a tricky section so it is carefully and thouroughly explained.
Previously we converted 2D measurements, this video deals with in detail how to convert volumes and get a good understanding of various quantities.
This is a practical video that will help learners to apply what they have learnt in 3D shapes.
Pythagoras is one of the most important and fundamental theorems in mathematics. This video deals with how Pythagoras can be used to prove whether a triangle is has a right angle or not.
Continuing with Pythagoras and right angle triangles, this video builds on even further into the power that is Pythagoras.
