**Subject Area:**Mathematics

**Grade:**6

**Domain-Subdomain:**Expressions & Equations

**Cluster:**Level 1: Recall

**Cluster:**Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions. (Major Cluster) -

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

## Problem-Solving Task

Students are asked to explore and then write an expression with an exponent. The purpose of this task is to introduce the idea of exponential growth and then connect that growth to expressions involving exponents. It illustrates well how fast exponential expressions grow.

Type: Problem-Solving Task

## Student Center Activity

Students can practice answering mathematics questions on a variety of topics. With an account, students can save their work and send it to their teacher when complete.

Type: Student Center Activity

## Tutorials

Students will learn that non-zero numbers to the zero power equals one. They will also learn that zero to any positive exponent equals zero. They will then investigate what happens when you have zero to the zero power.

Type: Tutorial

You will discover rules to help you determine the sign of an exponential expression with a base of -1.

Type: Tutorial

In this tutorial, you will apply what you know about multiplying negative numbers to determine how negative bases with exponents are affected and what patterns develop.

Type: Tutorial

Students will evaluate expressions using the order of operations.

Type: Tutorial

This video will show how to evaluate expressions with exponents using the order of operations.

Type: Tutorial

This video demonstrates how to evaluate expressions with whole number exponents.

## Virtual Manipulatives

This drag and drop Venn diagram simulation gives students the opportunity to solve a mathematical problem based on number properties using a range of different Venn diagrams. There are five different levels involving a range of multiples and simply odds and evens. The three core layouts cover simple separate sets, two intersecting sets, and a three way intersecting Venn Diagram. The odds and evens layout is limited to two intersecting sets, of course.

Type: Virtual Manipulative

In this activity, students practice solving algebraic expressions using order of operations. The applet records their score so the student can track their progress. This activity allows students to practice applying the order of operations when solving problems. This activity includes supplemental materials, including background information about the topics covered, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet.
