Content Core Standard: (List the standard(s) and then hyperlink it to the standards website.CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.EE.B.5Understand solving an equation or inequality as a process of answering a question: which values from a specified set, if any, make the equation or inequality true? Use substitution to determine whether a given number in a specified set makes an equation or inequality true.CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.EE.B.6Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a realworld or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.EE.B.7Solve realworld and mathematical problems by writing and solving equations of the form x + p = q and px = q for cases in which p, q and x are all nonnegative rational numbers.Common 6EE Standards
