6th Grade MAT Targeted Standards
Domain (EE) Expressions and Equations
Cluster: Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions.

MAT-06.EE.02 Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.

  • a. Write expressions that record operations with numbers and with letters standing for numbers.
  • b. Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor, quotient, coefficient); view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity.
  • c. 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).

Student Learning Targets:

Knowledge Targets

  • I can use a variable to represent an unknown quantity in an expression.
