TeacherFelicia Taylor
Subject AreaIntensive Math
Grade Level6th
Week #24
Unit of InstructionFocus 4: Equivalent Expressions; Focus 5: Equations & Inequalities
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.5.NF.1.1

Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators.

MAFS.6.EE.2.5

Understand solving 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.

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.

MAFS.6.EE.2.7

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.
