PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I use this task as an expressions unit opener with my sixth graders, but it would also be a great culminating task. There are several parts to the task, and together, all parts address all standards in Georgia's Common Core Expressions unit. Additionally, there is a slide with answers following each portion of the task. By using a PowerPoint, the teacher can lead students through the introduction, and each part of the task is displayed for students to refer to as they work. An answer slide is included after each portion of the task. The PowerPoint begins with important expressions terms (expression, equation, base, exponent, properties of operations, order of operations, variable, constant, coefficient, term), materials needed (colored tiles, math journals, pencil with eraser, and crayons), followed by the tasks. Tasks include:
*Basic modeling of non-algebraic expressions
*2 families whose trip costs are to be modeled using colored tiles & sketched, expressions for the costs written then simplified (like terms combined), and each part of the expressions labeled (coefficients, variables, terms)
*Evaluating expressions by replacing variables with their values (costs) to find total costs of trips
*A situation related to the trip that can be modeled then written as an exponent
