STAAR Test Prep - This document includes 2 assessments over 6th grade math standards for Generating Equivalent Expressions/Order of Operations and Algebra standards. This resource could be used as a Pre/Post Assessment, Unit Quizzes, Guided and Independent Practice, Review, and STAAR Test Practice!
*This resource is also available in my STAAR TEST PRACTICE BUNDLE. The bundle includes 20 assessments over all 6th grade mathematics standards.
Assessment questions are aligned with the NEW TEKS and formatted similar to STAAR. The same font, type of graphics, and wording are used as much as possible to mirror STAAR. Processing and problem solving standards are embedded throughout.
♥ Two Assessments -10-questions each- STAAR formatted -There are 18 multiple choice questions and 2 gridded response items.
♥ A list of TEKS Standards
♥ A Testing Answer Key Blueprint which codes items by Readiness and Supporting Standards.
♥ A Student Answer Document/Bubble Sheet
READINESS STANDARDS INCLUDED:
√6.7(A) Generate equivalent numerical expressions using order of operations, including whole number exponents, and prime factorization.
√6.7(D) Generate equivalent expressions using the properties of operations: inverse, identity, commutative, associative, and distributive properties.
SUPPORTING STANDARDS INCLUDED:
√6.7(B) Distinguish between expressions and equations verbally, numerically, and algebraically.
√6.7(C) Determine if two expressions are equivalent using concrete models, pictorial models, and algebraic representations.
RELATED COMMON CORE STANDARDS:
√6.EE.A.1 Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.
√6.EE.A.2 Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
√6.EE.A.2a Write expressions that record operations with numbers and with letters standing for numbers.
√6.EE.A.2b Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor, quotient, coefficient); view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity. both a single entity and a sum of two terms.
√6.EE.A.2c Evaluate 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, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations).
√6.EE.A.3 Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression
√6.EE.A.4 Identify when two expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them). For example, the expressions y + y + y and 3y are equivalent because they name the same number regardless of which number y stands for.
√6.EE.B.5 Understand 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.
