Hello and welcome to Eighth Grade Math! My name is Mrs. Ruelas. During this course, students will work with expressions and equations, compare and evaluate functions, and work with integer exponents. We will also be exploring many concepts from geometry including understanding the Pythagorean Theorem and working with problems involving volume of cylinders, cones, and spheres.
I grew up in Lake Elsinore and even went to school here at Terra Cotta. I attended UC Riverside for three years majoring in Pure Mathematics and I finished my Bachelor's Degree in Business and Accounting through University of Phoenix. I received my Master's Degree from Grand Canyon University three years ago. I am going on my third year teaching here at Terra Cotta and I have found this career is one of the most rewarding careers there is!
