Write and interpret numerical expressions  Cluster 1 

Standard
5.OA.1: Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical
expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.

Standard
5.OA.2: Write simple expressions that record calculations with
numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating
them.
For example, express the calculation "add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2"
as 2 x (8 +7). Recognize that 3 x (18932 + 921) is three times as
large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or
product.

Analyze patterns and relationships  Cluster 2 

Standard 5.OA.3: Generate
two numerical patterns using two given rules. Identify apparent
relationships between corresponding terms. Form ordered pairs
consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and graph the
ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 0, and given the rule “Add 6” and the starting number 0, generate terms in the resulting sequences, and observe that the terms in one sequence are twice the corresponding terms in the other sequence. Explain informally why this is so.
