Teacher Kimberlie Hymes Math 6th 26 Expressions and Equations
Standard(s) Taught

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.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• use precise mathematical vocabulary to explain the differences between equations and inequalities and the meanings of their symbols.
• discover that solutions to inequalities represent a range of possible values rather than a single solution.
• reason the value(s) that make an equation or inequality true and select from a given set of values.
• simplify numerical expressions by substituting values for given variables.
• explain what the equality and inequality symbols mean and determine if a number sentence is true or false based on the given symbol.

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

Assignments Due

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

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)   BB2

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

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday)  Combining Like Terms

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
