 Teacher Kimberlie Hymes Math 6th 23 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.

MAFS.6.EE.2.7
Solve real-world 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.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• explain what the equality and inequality symbols mean and determine if a number sentence is true or false based on the given symbol.
• understand solving an inequality is answering the question of which values from a specified set, if any, make the inequality true.
• understand that an inequality with numerical expressions is either true or false—it is true if the numbers calculated on each side of the inequality sign result in a correct statement and false otherwise.

• solve one-step equations by relating an equation to a diagram.
• 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 and employ tape diagrams to determine their answer.
• check to determine if their solution makes the equation true.
• write and solve algebraic equations that represent real world problems.

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)   Z1 and Z6

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

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) Mathspace One-Step Equations Add/Subtract and One-Step Equations Multiply/Divide

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
