Standard(s) Taught


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.


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.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• use a variable to write an algebraic expression that represents a real-world situation when a specific number is unknown.
• explain and give examples of how a variable can represent a single unknown number (ex: x = 9 or 5y = 10) or any number in a specified set (ex: m < 8 or n + 6 > 10).
• use a variable to write an expression that represents a consistent relationship in a particular pattern (e.g., use function tables to write an expression that would represent the output for any input).

• develop expressions involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division from real-world problems.

• explain what the equality and inequality symbols mean and determine if a number sentence is true or false based on the given symbol.
• understand solving an inequality is answering the question of which values from a specified set, if any, make the inequality true.
• understand that an inequality with numerical expressions is either true or false—it is true if the numbers calculated on each side of the inequality sign result in a correct statement and false otherwise.

Classroom Activities

This week we will continue our expressions unit and develop ideas of equivalent expressions and inequalities. Students will be completing notes, notebook activities, and Mathspace to practice these concepts. 

Assignments Due

We will have an assignment this week on equivalent ratios. This assignment will be available on MathSpace and will be due 12/18/17

“One-Step Equation Homework” Due 12/18/17

Additional Resources

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems. 

Students are able to complete additional practice on both MathSpace and IXL.
