# Q3, W9: March 2nd – 6th

Teacher Felicia Taylor Intensive Math 6th 27 Focus 7: Equations & Inequalities
Standard(s) Taught

#### Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students are successful when they canâ€¦

• use precise mathematical vocabulary to explain the differences between equations and inequalities and the meanings of their symbols.
• determine if a number sentence is true or false based on the given symbol.
• discover that solutions to inequalities represent a range of possible values rather than a single solution.
• simplify numerical expressions by substituting values for given variables
• solve one-step equations that represent real-world mathematical problems that involve positive rational numbers and zero.
• calculate the solution of one-step equations by using their knowledge of order of operations and the properties of equality for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
• check to determine if their solution makes the equation true.
• discover that a variable can stand for an infinite number of solutions when used in inequalities.
• graph inequalities on a number line.
• write inequalities to solve real-world mathematical problems.
• check by substitution to determine if the graph of an inequality is correct.
• explain the independent variable and the dependent variable in a relationship.
• use variables to represent two quantities.
• identify relationships between tables, graphs, and equations.
• recognize that a change in the independent variable creates a change in the dependent variable such as the following: As x changes, y also changes.
• write an equation to express the quantity in terms of the dependent and independent variables.
