This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 8, Unit 6, Grade 6. In this activity, students apply what they know about the meaning of operations and their properties to understand what is meant by "equivalent expressions." The focus is more on building that understanding than it is about doing all the types they eventually need to be able to do. It is expected that students will reason using what they know about operations on numbers and potentially use diagrams.
