Chapter 5: Algebraic Expressions and Properties

Ohio's Learning Standards:
•  Find the greatest common factor of two whole numbers less than on equsl to 100 and the least common multiple of two whole numbers less than or equal to 12.  Use the distributive property to express a sum of two whole numbers 1-100 with a common factor as a multiple of a sum of two whole numbers with no common factor.  (6.NS.4)
•  Write expressions that record operations with numbers and with letters standing for numbers.  (6.EE.2a)
•  Identify parts of an expressions using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor, quotient, coefficient); view one or more parts of an epxressions as a single entitiy.  (6.EE.2b)
• Evalulate expressions at specific values of their variables.  Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems.  PErform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole number exponents, using algebraic order of operations when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order.  (6.EE.2c)
• Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.  (6.EE.3)
• Identify when two expressions are equivalent, i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them. (6.EE.4)
