IN.6.3. Algebra and Functions
Students write verbal expressions and sentences as algebraic expressions and equations. They evaluate algebraic expressions, solve simple linear equations, and graph and interpret their results. They investigate geometric relationships and describe them algebraically.
6.3.2 Write and use formulas with up to three variables to solve problems.
6.3.5 Use variables in expressions describing geometric quantities.
Students deepen their understanding of the measurement of plane and solid shapes and use this understanding to solve problems. They calculate with temperature and money, and choose appropriate units of measure in other areas.
6.5.8 Use strategies to find the surface area and volume of right prisms and cylinders using appropriate units.
