MD.MA.AI. Algebra I
Unit 1: Relationships between Quantities and Reasoning with Equations
HSA-SSE.A. Interpret the structure of expressions.
A.SSE.1a. Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context – Interpret parts of an expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients.
A.SSE.1a.1. Ability to make connections between symbolic representations and proper mathematics vocabulary.
A.SSE.1b. Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context – Interpret complicated expressions by viewing one or more of their parts as a single entity. For example, interpret P(1+r)^n as the product of P and a factor not depending on P.
A.SSE.1b.1. Ability to interpret and apply rules for order of operations.
HSA-REI.B. Solve equations and inequalities in one variable.
A.REI.3. Solve linear equations and inequalities in one variable, including equations with coefficients represented by letters.
A.REI.3.1. Ability to analyze the structure of an equation to determine the sequence of steps that need to be applied to arrive at a solution.
A.REI.3.2. Ability to accurately perform the steps needed to solve a linear equation/inequality.
