 Teacher Kimberlie Hymes Math 6th 24 Expressions and Equations
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.6.EE.3.9
Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem from a variety of cultural contexts 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

• create a table of two variables that represents a real-world situation in which one quantity will change in relation to the other.
• explain the difference between the independent variable and the dependent variable.
• identify the independent and dependent variable in a relationship.
• write an algebraic equation that represents the relationship between the two variables.
• create a graph by plotting the independent variable on the x-axis and the dependent variable on the y-axis of a coordinate plane.
• analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables by comparing the table, graph, and equation.

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.

DIA #4 Thursday/Friday (Expressions and Equations)

Assignments Due

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

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)   BB2 and BB7

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

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) None

DIA #4 Thursday/Friday (Expressions and Equations)

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
