**IN THIS UNIT, STUDENTS WILL BE EXPECTED TO:**

- Use Commutative, Associative, Distributive, Identity, and Inverse Properties to calculate with numbers in any form (whole

numbers, fractions and decimals).

- Convert between rational numbers forms (whole numbers, fractions and decimals) to solve problems as appropriate.

- Solve multistep mathematical and real life problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole

numbers, fractions and decimals).

- Use mental computation and estimation strategies to assess the reasonableness of the answer.

- Translate words or real life situations into variable equations/inequalities.

- Solve one or two step equations with rational numbers fluently.

- Solve word problems leading to one or two step equations with rational numbers.

- Construct simple equations and inequalities with rational numbers to solve problems.

- Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each

approach.

- Solve word problems leading to one or two step inequalities with rational numbers.

- Graph the solution set of inequalities and interpret it in the context of the problem.

- Use proportional relationships to solve percent problems including simple interest, tax, markups and markdowns,

gratuities, commissions, and fees.

- Reproduce a scale drawing at a different scale.
