- 6.EE.B.5Understand 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.
- 6.EE.B.6Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.
- 6.EE.B.7Solve 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.
- 6.EE.B.8Write an inequality of the form x > c or x < c to represent a constraint or condition in a real-world or mathematical problem. Recognize that inequalities of the form x > c or x < c have infinitely many solutions; represent solutions of such inequalities on number line diagrams.

Perimeter, Area, and Combining Like Terms

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Expressions, Equations, & Inequalities

Big Idea:What are similarities and differences between these figures? What expressions represent the perimeter and area of each figure? Students combine like terms and create expressions to represent the perimeter and area of figures created with algebra tiles.

Reasoning About Inequality Solution Sets

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Inequalities

Big Idea:An inequality is an algebraic statement that a quantity is greater than, less than, or equal to another quantity. A solution to an inequality is any value that makes the inequality true.

Writing Equations from Tables - Stations

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Equations

Big Idea:Using stations allows time to practice skills in small groups.

Review Day for Equations and Inequalities

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Equations

Big Idea:Practicing for tests helps build good study habits.

Modeling Inequalities on Number Lines

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Inequalities

Big Idea:Inequalities can be graphed on a number line to represent all possible numbers in the solution set.

Writing Simple Inequalities

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Inequalities

Big Idea:Real-word contexts can be represented by algebraic inequalities when there is a comparison of two unequal quantities, or when there are a range of possible solutions.

One-Step Inequalities and the Real World

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Inequalities

Big Idea:Inequalities can be written to express verbal descriptions.

6.EE.B.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.

6.EE.B.6

Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.

6.EE.B.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.
