1862 Words8 Pages
Overview and Goals: This is one unit in a yearlong 6th grade math course. In this unit, the students will learn about expressions and equations. Students will learn how letters stand for numbers, and be able to read, write, and evaluate expressions in which these letters take the place of numbers. In this unit, students will learn how to identify parts of an expression using various new terms. They will learn to solve both one- and two-step equations. Students will be able to distinguish between dependent and independent variables. They will be able to identify the dependent and independent variables of equations and in turn, be able to graph them. Various activities to be completed inside and outside of the classroom will be used to show…show more content…
Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations). 6.EE.A.3 Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. 6.EE.A.4 Identify when two expressions are equivalents (i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them). Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities. 6.EE.B.5 Understand an equation or inequality as a process of answering a question: which values from a specified set, if any, make the equation or inequality true. Use substitution to determine whether a given number in a specified set makes an equation or inequality true. 6.EE.B.6 Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set. 6.EE.B.7 Solve real world and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form x + p = q and px = q for cases in which p, q, and x are all nonnegative rational numbers. 6.EE.B.8 Write an inequality of the form x > c or x < c to represent a constraint or condition in a real-world or mathematical problem. Recognize that inequalities of the form x > c or x > c have infinitely
