Week of 1-15-18

Standards to be covered:

MCC6.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. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation. For example, in a problem involving motion at constant speed, list and graph ordered pairs of distances and times, and use the equation d = 65t to show the relationship between distance and time.

 

Game Plan for the week:

Standards to be covered:

MCC6.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 if a given number in a set makes an equation or inequality true.

MCC6.EE.8 :  Write an inequality of the form x > c or x < c to represent a constraint or condition in real-world 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

Week of 12-18

Students will be taking a formative assessment on Monday and Tuesday to assess their ability to solve one-step equations and write equations from word problems.  They will be able to use their notes, so please check that notes are in order.  This will be the final grade for the nine weeks period.  Since it is a formative, there will be no retakes given.

How to study:

1.Rework problems from homework.  The word problem answers are on the blogs from earlier this week.

2.  Watch the Math Antics videos

3.Use the attached power point of problems to practice.  Solving one step equations and writing one step equations from word probles-vu9o2z

Solving one-step equations

Standards:

MCC6.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 if a given number in a set makes an equation or inequality true.

MCC6.EE.6:  Use variables to represent numbers and write expression 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.

MCC6.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.

Plan for the week:

Monday:  Students will take a quiz over simplifying expressions with distributive property.

Combining Like Terms and Distributive Property

Standards for the week:

MCC6.EE.3:  Apply 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 the properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y.

MCC6.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).  For example, the expressions y + y + y and 3y are equivalent because they name the same number regardless of which number y stands for.

Week of November 13: solving expressions with substitution

Standards for the week:

MCC6.EE.2:  Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.

MCC6.EE.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 = s³ and A = 6s² to find the volume and surface area of a cube with sides of length s = ½.
