## Related Resources

The various resources listed below are aligned to the same standard, (6EE04) taken from the CCSM (Common Core Standards For Mathematics) as the Expressions and equations Worksheet shown above.

*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. Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities. *
