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

Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.

MAT-06.EE.02.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).

For example, use the formulas V = s³ and A = 6 s² to find the volume and surface area of a cube with sides of length s =1/2.
