- 6.EE.A.1Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.
- 6.EE.A.2Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
- 6.EE.A.3Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3(2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y.
- 6.EE.A.4Identify when two expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them). For example, the expressions y + y + y and 3y are equivalent because they name the same number regardless of which number y stands for.

1st day of school

6th Grade Math

» Unit:

First week of school

Big Idea:In this lesson, I’m introducing students to the vocabulary and the practices. They will be looking at problems that support the practices and then trying out a problem to use the practices.

6.EE.A.2a

Write expressions that record operations with numbers and with letters standing for numbers. For example, express the calculation “Subtract y from 5” as 5 – y.

6.EE.A.2b

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. For example, describe the expression 2 (8 + 7) as a product of two factors; view (8 + 7) as both a single entity and a sum of two terms.

6.EE.A.2c

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). For example, use the formulas V = s^{3} and A = 6 s^{2} to find the volume and surface area of a cube with sides of length s = 1/2.
