This mathematics packet contains a curriculum-embedded Common Core–aligned task and instructional supports. The task is embedded in a 4-5 week unit that focuses on equations and the use of variables and algebraic reasoning to solve mathematical problems that connect to students' everyday experiences. The series of activities is designed to provide students with a conceptual understanding of equations, expressions, variables, and relations. The tasks ask students to represent their work by using models and to apply a variety of strategies to solve problems. This sequence of tasks builds on previous work with algebraic expressions and asks students to demonstrate and effectively communicate their mathematical understanding of equations and inequalities.
