2 ) Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. [5-OA2]

Examples: Express the calculation "add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2" as 2 x (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 x (18,932 + 921) is three times as large as 18,932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.

Title: You Kan With Khan: Math Made Easy!
Description:

Khan Academy is an excellent free resource for differentiating instruction. Students have different learning styles and learn at different levels. With Khan Academy, students can easily and quickly learn complicated mathematical concepts through practice, videos, and examples. Each student can be assigned a different set of lessons depending on their individual level and learning needs. The teacher can decide which lessons a student will work on according to their needs and learning goals. Khan Academy appeals to varying learning styles, provides quick feedback, and allows the teacher to easily individualize instruction.
