**FINCANTIERI MARINETTE MARINE** – **Lesson Plan & Answer Key** – What does a sinking ship have to do with math? **VIDEO**

**Common Core Mathematical Content Standards**

**6.EE.2** Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.

**6.EE.6** Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem, understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.

**7.EE.4** Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.

Using algebraic methods to solve video question number 4 and use of extension activities would allow the following high school standards to be included:

**A.SSE**Seeing Structure in Expressions**A.CED**Creating Equations- Math Modeling

Grades 6 & 7
