This expectation connects to several others in Grade 6: (a) understanding ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems, (b) applying and extending previous understandings of multiplication and division to divide fractions by fractions, (c) applying and extending previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers, (d) applying and extending previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions, and (e) representing and analyzing quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables.
In previous grades, students write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them, and generate ordered pairs from two numerical rules.
This expectation represents major work of the grade.
How is the solution to an inequality different than a solution to an equation?
In Grade 7, students solve real-life and mathematical problems involving two-step equations and inequalities. In Grade 8, students work with radicals and integer exponents and solve linear equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations.
