Strand: EXPRESSIONS AND EQUATIONS (6.EE)

Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions involving exponents and variables (Standards 6.EE.14). They reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities (Standards 6.EE.58). Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables in a real-world context (Standard 6.EE.9).

Standard 6.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 properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y.
