Q3, W2: January 13th – 17th

TeacherFelicia Taylor
Subject AreaIntensive Math
Grade Level6th
Week #20
Unit of InstructionFocus 6: Expressions
Standard(s) Taught


Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.


Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.

  1. Write expressions that record operations with numbers and with letters standing for numbers.
  2. Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor, quotient, coefficient); view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity.
  3. Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables.  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).
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students are successful when they can…

  • understand the meaning of exponents and exponential notation
  • use appropriate terminology to explain how to evaluate an expression.
  • evaluate numerical expressions containing exponents.
  • discover that any base to the zero power is 1.
  • recognize that variables represent unknown quantities.
  • translate verbal expressions into numerical expressions and numerical expressions into verbal expressions.
  • communicate orally and/or in writing about translating and evaluating variable expressions using precise mathematical language, including the vocabulary variables, coefficients, constant, and term.
  • evaluate expressions for given values of variables using the order of operations when appropriate.
