- 5.OA.A.1Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
- 5.OA.A.2Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation "add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2"Â as 2 Ã (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 Ã (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.

Numerical Expressions and Patterns Introduction Lesson

5th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Numerical Expressions and Patterns

Big Idea:Play this vocabulary game, Vo-Back-ulary, to make help students form connections to new words and then understand the connections between them.

The Challenge of Directions

5th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Numerical Expressions and Patterns

Big Idea:Students grapple with the challenges of carefully reading questions to answer what is actually asked. Interpreting the directions can be the most challenging part of a problem.

Strength of Operations

5th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Numerical Expressions and Patterns

Big Idea:Different operations have different strengths

Order of Operations & Decimals

5th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Numerical Expressions and Patterns

Big Idea:Students will use EVERYTHING they have already learned to simplify some tricky expressions (exponents, decimals, and order of operations are all combined).

Choice Time Continued

5th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Numerical Expressions and Patterns

Big Idea:Providing choice helps keeps students motivated. Students move freely between activities as they practice what they have learned.

Order of Operations

5th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Numerical Expressions and Patterns

Big Idea: When students know to simplify expressions before stressing, they will find complex expressions can be simple when taken one piece at a time.

PEMDAS PIZZA

5th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Numerical Expressions and Patterns

Big Idea:Practice makes perfect. Today students spend more time simplifying expressions. The PEMDAS PIZZA model helps them stay organized.

Writing Numeric Expressions

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Expressions

Big Idea:Expressions can be used to represent a mathematical or real-world problem using numbers and symbols to make meaning of a problem and understand problems.

Algebra: Equal or Not Equal

4th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Algebra

Big Idea:Students learn that equations always have an equal sign and can be true or false.

Order of Operations: Solving Simple Equations Using PEMDAS

4th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Concepts of Multiplication

Big Idea:Students will learn a very straightforward approach to using PEMDAS in solving simple equations.

Mirror Image Review

Problem Set: Number Lines

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Number Tricks, Patterns, and Abstractions

Big Idea:A number line gives us a way to visualize order of operations, bridging the gap between abstract and quantitative reasoning . As we begin, students pay close attention to scale.

The Parentheses Challenge

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Number Tricks, Patterns, and Abstractions

Big Idea:Let's play a game: given an expression, can you place one set of parentheses that will give that expression the greatest possible value?

5.OA.A.1

Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.

5.OA.A.2

Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation "add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2"Â as 2 Ã (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 Ã (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
