Equivalent Expressions
6th Grade


Alabama Course of Study Standards:
16

Generate equivalent algebraic expressions using the properties of operations, including inverse, identity,
commutative, associative, and distributive. 
Arkansas Academic Standards:
6.EE.A.3

Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions
For example: Apply the distributive property to the expression 3(2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6(4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y.
Note: Includes but not limited to the distributive property. 
Arizona  K12 Academic Standards:
6.EE.A.3

Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x. 
Common Core State Standards:
Math.6.EE.3 or 6.EE.A.3
Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE):
MGSE6.EE.3

Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3(2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6(4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y. 
North Carolina  Standard Course of Study:
6.EE.3

Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions without exponents. 
New York State Next Generation Learning Standards:
6.EE.3

Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. e.g., Apply the distributive property to the expression 3(2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the
distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6(4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y. 
Tennessee Academic Standards:
6.EE.A.3

Apply the properties of operations (including, but not limited to, commutative, associative, and distributive properties) to generate equivalent expressions. The distributive property is prominent here. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y. 
Wisconsin Academic Standards:
6.EE.A.3

Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y.

Determine whether two expressions are equivalent and justify the reasoning. 
Arkansas Academic Standards:
6.EE.A.4

Identify when two expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them)
For example: The expressions y + y + y and 3y are equivalent because they name the same number regardless of which number y stands for. 
Arizona  K12 Academic Standards:
6.EE.A.4

Identify when two expressions are equivalent. For example, the expressions y + y + y and 3y are equivalent because they name the same number regardless of which number y stands for.

Identify when two expressions are equivalent and justify with mathematical reasoning. 
New York State Next Generation Learning Standards:
6.EE.4

Identify when two expressions are equivalent. e.g., The expressions y + y + y and 3y are equivalent because they name the same number regardless of which number y represents. 
Tennessee Academic Standards:
6.EE.A.4

Identify when expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them). For example, the expression 5b + 3b is equivalent to (5 +3) b, which is equivalent to 8b. 
Wisconsin Academic Standards:
