MAFS.6.EE.1.2
Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
a. Write expressions that record operations with numbers and with letters standing for numbers.
b. 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.
c. 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

• translate a relationship given in words into an algebraic expression for all operations. • identify parts of an algebraic expression using mathematical terms for all operations.
• recognize an expression as both a single value and as two or more terms on which an operation is performed. • understand that a letter represents one number in an expression and when that number replaces the letter, the expression can be evaluated to one number (link “unknown”—what they learned in elementary school—to “variable”).
• apply the order of operations when evaluating both arithmetic and algebraic expressions.
• substitute values in formulas to solve real-world problems.

Classroom Activities

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards.

Wednesdays we do not complete our rotation. We work lessons customized to each students level on I-Ready. These lessons are customized to each learning level and scaffolds the current unit for each student allowing advanced students to work ahead and help remediate struggling students.

Thursday/Friday we will take our first test of the Unit. This test will cover Multiplication Properties, Simplifying distributive property, one-step equations, and solving expressions with order of operations with exponents.

Assignments Due

The week students will be assigned the following to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)   None

students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments. 

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) None 

None this week, just studying for the test and making sure all prior work is submitted

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
