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.

**â€‹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.
