6.6 Expressions and Equations

Lesson 1

  • I can tell whether or not an equation could represent a tape diagram.
  • I can use a tape diagram to represent a situation.

Lesson 2

  • I can match equations to real life situations they could represent.
  • I can replace a variable in an equation with a number that makes the equation true, and know that this number is called a solution to the equation.

Lesson 3

  • I can compare doing the same thing to the weights on each side of a balanced hanger to solving equations by subtracting the same amount from each side or dividing each side by the same number.
  • I can explain what a balanced hanger and a true equation have in common.
  • I can write equations that could represent the weights on a balanced hanger.

Lesson 4

  • I can explain why different equations can describe the same situation.
  • I can solve equations that have whole numbers, fractions, and decimals.

Lesson 5

  • I understand the meaning of a fraction made up of fractions or decimals, like $\frac{2.1}{0.07}$ or $\frac{\frac45}{\frac32}$.
  • When I see an equation, I can make up a story that the equation might represent, explain what the variable represents in the story, and solve the equation.

Lesson 6

  • I can use an expression that represents a situation to find an amount in a story.
  • I can write an expression with a variable to represent a calculation where I do not know one of the numbers.

Lesson 7

  • I can solve percent problems by writing and solving an equation.

Lesson 8

  • I can explain what it means for two expressions to be equivalent.
  • I can use a tape diagram to figure out when two expressions are equal.
  • I can use what I know about operations to decide whether two expressions are equivalent.

Lesson 9

  • I can use a diagram of a rectangle split into two smaller rectangles to write different expressions representing its area.
  • I can use the distributive property to help do computations in my head.

Lesson 10

  • I can use a diagram of a split rectangle to write different expressions with variables representing its area.

Lesson 11

  • I can use the distributive property to write equivalent expressions with variables.

Lesson 12

  • I can evaluate expressions with exponents and write expressions with exponents that are equal to a given number.
  • I understand the meaning of an expression with an exponent like $3^5$.

Lesson 13

  • I can decide if expressions with exponents are equal by evaluating the expressions or by understanding what exponents mean.

Lesson 14

  • I how how to evaluate expressions that have both an exponent and addition or subtraction.
  • I know how to evaluate expressions that have both an exponent and multiplication or division.

Lesson 15

  • I can find solutions to equations with exponents in a list of numbers.
  • I can replace a variable with a number in an expression with exponents and operations and use the correct order to evaluate the expression.

Lesson 16

  • I can create tables and graphs that show the relationship between two amounts in a given ratio.
  • I can write an equation with variables that shows the relationship between two amounts in a given ratio.

Lesson 17

  • I can create tables and graphs to represent the relationship between distance and time for something moving at a constant speed.
  • I can write an equation with variables to represent the relationship between distance and time for something moving at a constant speed.

Lesson 18

  • I can create tables and graphs that show different kinds of relationships between amounts.
  • I can write equations that describe relationships with area and volume.

Lesson 19

  • I can create a table and a graph that represent the relationship in a given equation.
  • I can explain what an equation tells us about the situation.
