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


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

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• build and clarify the relationship of multiplication and addition by evaluating identities such as: 3g = g + g + g.
• discover the commutative properties of addition and multiplication, the additive identity property of zero, and the multiplicative identity property of one model [e.g., use algebra tiles to model that 3(2 + x) = 6 + 3x] and write equivalent expressions using the distributive property and move from an expanded form to a factored form of an expression.

• determine whether two expressions are equivalent by using the same value to evaluate both expressions.
• understand that a letter in an expression or an equation can represent a number and when that number is replaced with a letter, an expression or an equation is stated (ex: 3x = 6 is an
equation and can also be seen as two equivalent expressions 3x and 6).

Classroom Activities

This week we will start focusing on how to solve one-step equations using all four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.) Students will practice solving for an unknown variable and writing the answer as an equation.
