6.EE.2 Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
6.EE.2.A Write expressions that record operations with numbers and with letters standing for numbers. For example, express the calculation ?Subtract y from 5? as 5 ? y.
6.EE.2.B Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor, quotient, coefficient); view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity. For example, describe the expression 2(8 + 7) as a product of two factors; view (8 + 7) as both a single entity and a sum of two terms.
6.EE.2C Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations). For example, use the formulas V = s3 and A = 6s2 to find the volume and surface area of a cube with sides of length s = ½.
