Grade 8 CBSE Mathematics syllabus identifies age-appropriate content. During the learning of Mathematics from grade 6 to grade 8, a child:

  • Moves from number sense to number patterns;
  • Sees relationships between numbers and looks for patterns in relationships;
  • Gains proficiency in using the newer language of Mathematics like variables, expressions, equations, identities, etc.
  • Uses arithmetic and algebra to solve real-life problems and pose meaning problems;
  • Discovers symmetries and acquire a sense of aesthetics by looking around regular shapes like triangles, circles, quadrilaterals, etc;
  • Comprehends the idea of space as reason enclosed within boundaries of a shape;
  • Relates numbers with shapes in terms of perimeter, area and volume and uses them to solve everyday life problems;
  • Learns to provide reasoning and convincing arguments to justify her/his own conclusions particularly in Mathematics; and
  • Collects, represents (graphically and in tables) and interprets data/information from her/his life experiences

The content of grade 8 CBSE Maths is consistent with the development of the student which includes:

  • Number System
  • Algebra
  • Ratio and Proportion
  • Geometry
  • Representing 3-D in 2-D
  • Quadrilaterals
  • Mensuration
  • Data Handling
