GA.MGSE6.EE. Expressions and Equations
Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions.
MGSE6.EE.1. Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.
MGSE6.EE.2. Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
MGSE6.EE.2b. 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. For example, describe the expression 2(8+7) as a product of two factors; view (8+7) as both a single entity and a sum of two terms.
MGSE6.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.
