Interactive Notebook Unit for Writing and Evaluating Expressions
An interactive notes unit on Writing and Evaluating Expressions. My interactive notes units are different from other products because they include a self-evaluation component and a writing about math component. Each lesson includes a question that requires a written response from the student. These can be used as formative assessments. I have found in my classroom that students who write about what they are learning in math have a deeper understanding of that math.
Writing and Evaluating Expressions is an essential skill in 5th grade as it is the basis of algebra. This unit includes both simplifying/ evaluating expressions with the order of operations and grouping symbols and writing expressions from both words and phrases. It also includes a lesson on understanding the relationship between expressions.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation “add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2” as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
