LESSON PLANS~ 2/3/2020- 2/7/2020


ALGEBRAIC EXPRESSIONS:  6.EE.1, 6.EE.2abc, 6.EE.3, 6.EE.4, 6.EE.6

Students will be able to: 

  • Write and evaluate expressions involving exponents
  • Use the order of operations to evaluate expressions involving exponents
  • Write algebraic expressions for real-world situations
  • Identify and describe parts of expressions
  • Evaluate expressions and formulas
  • Combine like terms
  • Use properties of operations to generate equivalent algebraic expressions.
  • Identify equivalent algebraic expressions


MONDAY/Tuesday~ Identify an anchor chart for properties:  commutative, associative, distributive, and identity.  Students will sing songs and use rhythms to aid in remembering properties, so that they can apply them.  Student work includes page 120 of Mastering the Grade 6 K-PREP in Mathematics. 

Ixl skill:  Y9, Y10, Y11, Y12

Understanding exponents:  identifying the base and exponent, writing in expanded form, evaluating, modeling process on a calculator.  Each day students will practice skills for pages 118 and 119 of K-PREP book.


Students will practice and apply order of operations.  123/124

Work will continue all week practicing the above skills. 

WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY/FRIDAY~ identify and use appropriate vocabulary for Algebra Unit. 

expression, variable, coefficient, term, constant, sentence, equation/equality, inequality, solution, base, exponent

Understanding algebra word problems.  Pages 133/134

Algebraic cards will be placed at each table for partner work.  They will match the algebraic verbal expression to expression.  This will be first 6 minutes after bell work.

Combing like terms:  Students will cut apart and match like terms for evaluating. 

Students will also substitute numbers for variables.  Pg 131

IXL skills assigned:  Y1 and Y7
