## New Things Grade 8 Maths Australian Students Will Learn

The concept of real numbers is relatively new in Year 8 Maths. Students will learn about irrational numbers, and rational numbers, and solve problems related to ratio and proportion. Profit and loss problems are also introduced in Year 8 Maths along with some new concepts in algebra like factorisation of algebraic expressions and their simplification. Students will solve linear equations using graphical methods, find perimeters and areas of parallelograms, trapeziums, rhombus, and kites and study the congruence of triangles. There are many new topics introduced this year. You will study all of them in Year 8 Maths tuition at CrunchGrade.

## Overcome Your Learning Challenges With Year 8 Maths Tutors

Word problems in algebra and learning different ways to solve an algebraic equation can be a little challenging for Year 8 students. Many students are unable to recall the basics of number facts which makes it difficult for them to solve problems. Some students also face difficulties in differentiating between Maths terms like simplifying, prime number, square number, congruent, similar, etc. CrunchGrade Year 8 Maths tutors also find it difficult for students to make connections between different Maths concepts such as units of measurement or any other topic that they might have mastered in the previous years.

With CrunchGrade efficient Year 8 Maths online tutors, students can:

• Solve problems related to rational and irrational numbers
• Solve profit and loss problems
• Make connections between expanding and factorising algebraic expressions
• Learn about the congruence of triangles and properties of different quadrilaterals
• Solve linear equations using algebraic and geometric methods
• Convert between units of area and volume
• Study the properties of circles, find their area and circumference
• Determine probabilities of complimentary events and more!

## Important Topics in Year 8 Maths

Linear equations, algebra and solid shapes are the three most important topics introduced in Year 8 Maths. According to CrunchGrade’s Year 8 Maths tutors in Melbourne and other parts of Australia, Year 8 students must be able to demonstrate fluency with concepts like percentages and units of measurement. They must know how to calculate mean, median and mode. They must be familiar with graphs and linear equations. Properties of quadrilaterals are another important topic in Year 8 Maths.

## Challenges in Tutoring Maths to Year 8 Students

Many Grade 8 Maths tutors in Sydney and other major cities of Australia find it difficult to help students develop logic and understanding of algebra. Since many students panic about this topic, it is quite difficult to make them feel empowered in algebra. However, at CrunchGrade, our Year 8 Maths tutors online are trained to teach all the topics to the students using real-life examples, illustrations and visualisation. Our stepwise explanations and problem-solving will help students over every learning challenge in Year 8 Maths.
