- 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.

5.OA.A.2
