Unit C: Expressions and Equations

Resources for 7.EE.1 - Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.

Resources for 7.EE.3 - Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form, using tools strategically.

Resources for 7.EE.2 - Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the problem and how the quantities in it are related.

Resources for 7.EE.4 - Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.

Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients. (3 videos)

Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. (6 videos)

Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. (9 videos)

Solve word problems leading to inequalities of the form px + q > r or px + q < r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Graph the solution set of the inequality and interpret it in the context of the problem. (11 videos)

Resources for 8.F.4 - Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities. Determine the rate of change and initial value of the function from a description of a relationship or from two (x, y) values, including reading these from a table or from a graph. Interpret the rate of change and initial value of a linear function in terms of the situation it models, and in terms of its graph or a table of values.

Resources for 8.F.5 - Describe qualitatively the functional relationship between two quantities by analyzing a graph (e.g., where the function is increasing or decreasing, linear or nonlinear). Sketch a graph that exhibits the qualitative features of a function that has been described verbally.
