UT.5.OA. OPERATIONS AND ALGEBRAIC THINKING (5.OA)
Write and interpret numerical expressions (Standards 5.OA.1–2), and analyze patterns and relationships (Standard 5.OA.3).
5.OA.1. Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
5.OA.2. Write and interpret simple numerical expressions.
5.OA.2.a. Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers. For example, use 2 x (8+7) to express the calculation "add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2."
5.OA.2.b. Interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, use conceptual understanding of multiplication to interpret 3 x (18939 + 921) as being three times as large as 18932 + 921 without calculating the indicated sum or product.
