Mathematics

Domain - Number and Operations in Base Ten, Grade 4

Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.

Math.4.NBT.B.4: Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

"Team Balance Sheets" 38-42

Domain - Number and Operations-Fractions, Grade 4

Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering.

Math.4.NF.A.2: Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

Activity Page
"Attractions Fractions" 35

Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers.

Math.4.NF.B.3: Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.

"Attractions Fractions" 35

Domain - Measurement and Data, Grade 4

Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements.

Math.4.MD.A.3: Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.

"Mapping Grid" 49

Domain - Number and Operations in Base Ten, Grade 5

Perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths.

Math.5.NBT.B.7: Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.

"The Red and the Black" 37

Domain - Number and Operations-Fractions, Grade 5

Use equivalent fractions as a strategy to add and subtract fractions.

Math.5.NF.A.2: Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2.

Activity Page
"Attractions Fractions" 35

Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions.

Math.5.NF.B.3: Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (a/b = a : b). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. For example, interpret 3/4 as the result of dividing 3 by 4, noting that 3/4 multiplied by 4 equals 3, and that when 3 wholes are shared equally among 4 people each person has a share of size 3/4. If 9 people want to share a 50-pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many pounds of rice should each person get? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?
