(Review) MAFS.6.EE.1.1

Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.


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. (to be taught C)
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. (to be taught C)
e. 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). (to be taught P)

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• understand the meaning of exponents and exponential notation such as 3^2 = 3 · 3
• use appropriate terminology to explain how to evaluate an expression. 
• evaluate numerical expressions containing exponents.
• discover that any base to the zero power is 1.

• recognize that variables represent unknown quantities.
• translate verbal expressions into numerical expressions and numerical expressions into verbal expressions.
• communicate orally and/or in writing about translating and evaluating variable expressions using precise mathematical language, including the vocabulary variables, coefficients, constant, and term.
• evaluate expressions for given values of variables using the order of operations when appropriate.

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.

Assignments Due

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

PEMDAS Maze (See top attached for extra copies) This was classwork and was due the day it was assigned. 

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)   IXL Y10, Y11

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

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) Order of Operations and Exponent Homework

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
