Grade 8 Homework
Grade 8 students are responsible for learning all of the material in each unit, even if we do not have the opportunity to cover it in class. This will require them to independently read the chapters in their book and make note of the vocabulary terms that are introduced in each chapter in order to complete their homework. A good review of the material in each unit can be found on the Grade 8 homeschool page, where links to study guides that identify the key concepts covered in each session and interactive session reviews are posted. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of these resources if you are having trouble finding the answers in the book.

Each Unit Assessment includes multiple-choice, fill in the blank and short answer questions and must be completed online at our Homework website. However, you may download and print a pdf copy to help you answer the questions.
