Operations and Algebraic Thinking: I CAN...
Standard
Solve numerical expressions using parentheses, brackets, and braces.

Core Standard5.OA.1 Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.

In Other WordsStudents understand how to use grouping symbols to perform order of operations. See this website for examples. Only review the first two examples.

If MasteredStudents can extend their thinking through this app.

If Not Yet Mastered 
StandardCreate patterns and analyze their relationships.

Core Standard5.OA.3 Generate two numerical patterns using two given rules. Identify apparent relationships between corresponding terms. Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 0, and given the rule “Add 6” and the starting number 0, generate terms in the resulting sequences, and observe that the terms in one sequence are twice the corresponding terms in the other sequence. Explain informally why this is so.

In Other WordsStudents will create two number patterns, such as "add 2" and "add 4." Students will then find corresponding terms, form ordered pairs, and then graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate graph.
