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.
TO GET A HEAD START: pages 364-366 in the textbook (there is an online version!)
