# Q3, W4: January 28th – February 1st Teacher Felicia Taylor Intensive Math 6th 22 Focus 5: Expressions
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.6.EE.1.1

Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.

MAFS.6.EE.1.2

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).

MAFS.6.EE.1.3

Apply the properties of operations as strategies to generate equivalent expressions.

MAFS.6.EE.1.4

Identify when two expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them).

MAFS.6.EE.2.6

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.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students are successful when they can…

• evaluate numerical expressions containing exponents.
• recognize that variables represent unknown quantities.
• communicate 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.
• apply the properties of operations with expressions involving variables to generate equivalent expressions.
• explore the concept of like terms and applying combining like terms in expressions accurately.
• reason that two expressions are equivalent through the use of substitution.
• use precise mathematical vocabulary when discussing expressions and variables.
• develop expressions involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division from real-world problems.
