Middle Grades Math
Expressions and Equations
In this unit, students will explore, analyze and solve linear equations and systems of linear equations. Graphical representations support student thinking and properties of operations are used to generate equivalent expressions and equations. Real-life and mathematical problems motivate the development of algebraic expressions and equations as problem-solving strategies. Students explore and work with exponents to make sense of the properties of exponents.
