Unit 4:Expressions and Equations
Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions.
Common Core Learning Standards Addressed:
6.EE.1: Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.
6.EE.2: Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
6.EE.3: Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.
6.EE.4: Identify when two expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them).
Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities.
6.EE.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.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.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.
6.EE.8: Write an inequality of the form x > x or x < c to represent a constraint or condition or condition in a real-world or mathematical problem.
​Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables.
6.EE.9: Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem 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.
