About This Chapter
FSA Grade 6 Math: Algebraic Equations - Chapter Summary
This chapter includes lessons covering everything your student will need to know about algebraic equations for the FSA Grade 6 Math exam, including inverse operations, writing and solving equations, and linear inequalities. This chapter will show your student how to:
- Write and solve addition, subtraction, multiplication and division equations
- Write and solve one-variable equations
- Solve one-step linear inequalities
- Plotting points to graph functions
Instructors will thoroughly explain each topic and walk your child through the process of solving algebraic equations on their own. Video lessons and self-assessment quizzes make material fun and easy to understand, which will help them retain what they've learned.
FSA Grade 6 Math: Algebraic Equations Chapter Objectives
The FSA Grade 6 Math exam measures student knowledge of mathematics and ensures they're meeting state education standards. FSA exams are used to measure academic progress and standards compliance in various areas of academics. The Algebraic Equations chapter of this study guide covers topics found on the expressions and equations portion of the FSA exam, one of four sections. The majority of questions in this section are multiple choice.
1. Inverse Operations in Math: Definition & Examples
In mathematics, inverse operations are operations that 'undo' each other. Most operations have an inverse. This lesson describes the most common operations and their inverses, and it provides some examples and a quiz to cement your knowledge.
2. Writing & Solving Addition Equations with One Variable
After watching this video lesson, you will know how to properly write an addition equation and how to solve any addition equation that you come across. Learn what the steps are to solve these equations that have one variable in them.
3. Writing & Solving Subtraction Equations with One Variable
After watching this video lesson, you will know what is needed in order to write a subtraction equation. You will also know how to solve any subtraction equation that you are given or that you write.
4. Writing & Solving Multiplication Equations with One Variable
After watching this video lesson, you will know the components that go into a complete multiplication equation. You will also learn the steps that are needed to solve a multiplication equation.
5. Writing & Solving Division Equations with One Variable
In this video lesson, you will learn the proper format of a division equation. Learn what components are needed for a complete division equation. Also learn what steps you need to take to solve these division equations.
6. Solving One-Step Linear Inequalities
In this video lesson, you will learn how you can solve any kind of linear inequality that only requires one step. Learn when you need to subtract, when you need to add, when you need to multiply, and when you need to divide.
7. Graph Functions by Plotting Points
Let's say you have a function. What does it look like? How do you graph it? In this lesson, we'll learn how to graph functions by determining and plotting points.
