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.
MAFS.6.EE.2.7
Solve realworld and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form x + p = q and px = q for cases in which p, q and x are all nonnegative rational numbers.
MAFS.6.EE.2.8
Write an inequality of the form x > c or x < c to represent a constraint or condition in a realworld or mathematical problem. Recognize that inequalities of the form x > c or x < c have infinitely many solutions; represent solutions of such inequalities on number line diagrams.
MAFS.6.EE.3.9
Use variables to represent two quantities in a realworld 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 onestep equations that represent realworld mathematical problems that involve positive rational numbers and zero.
 calculate the solution of onestep 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 realworld 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.
