- Interpret Complicated Expressions by Viewing One or More of Their Parts - Let's consider a more complex expression: 5x - (2 - 4y). How many terms are in that expression? Your students will probably say three, but there are only two the way the expression is written.
- Interpret Expressions that Represent a Quantity in Terms of its Context - At its core, this standard wants students to start thinking of math as a language, not a pile of numbers. Just like any other language, math can help us communicate thoughts and ideas with each other, but students need to know the basics before they can really understand it.
