Math

Chapter 13: Perimeter and Area
In this last chapter, students will understand how to use and apply perimeter and area formulas for rectangles. They will look at how to apply this to real world problems.

Chapter 12: Relative Size of Measurement Units
Students will learn to measure in both customary and metric units. In both types of units, students will learn how to convert from one size unit to another, and how to choose when is the most appropriate unit to use. As part of this unit, students participated in a Metric Olympics-- what fun!

Chapter 11: Angles
Drawing angles, splitting angles, and measuring angles are all concepts covered in this chapter. PRECISION is very important! Estimating (whether an angle is acute or obtuse) is also very helpful when measuring!

Chapter 10: Two-Dimensional Figures
This chapter begins our 4 chapter unit on Geometry, Measurement, and Data. We discuss how to draw and classify angles and triangles. Using specific vocabulary is important when classifying different polygons.

Chapter 9: Relate Fractions and Decimals
This chapter wraps up our unit on Number Sense - Fractions and Decimals. Students should know decimal equivalents for common fractions and be able to convert from fraction to decimal for other basic fractions.

Chapter 8: Multiplying Whole Numbers by Fractions
Students will apply multiplication strategies to multiplying whole numbers by fractions. Some strategies include: adding, converting to improper fraction, and using the distributive property.

Chapter 7: Adding and Subtracting Fractions
In this chapter, students will learn a variety of strategies to add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers. Students should decide for themselves which strategies they understand, like, and what to apply to solve problems.

Chapter 6: Fraction Equivalence and Comparisons
We begin several chapters focused on fractions. Students will use a variety of tools and strategies to represent fractions and compare them. These foundation skills are crucial before students can move on to adding, subtraction, and multiplying with fractions.

Chapter 5: Factors, Multiples, and Patterns
Students are learning what is the difference between factors and multiples, how to find all the factors of a number, determining if a number if prime or composite, and divisibility rules.

Chapter 4: Divide by 1-Digit Numbers
Students are learning a variety of strategies to divide, including: distributive property, area model, use an array, draw a tape diagram, and multiply to check.

Chapter 3: Multiply Larger Numbers
In this chapter, students will review all the multiplication strategies we learned in the previous weeks to multiply larger numbers.

Chapter 2: Multiply by 1-Digit Numbers
In this chapter, students will be multiplying by one digit numbers. Students need a strong understanding of their multiplication facts in order to succeed in this chapter. We will review multiplication facts and learn strategies to memorize the times table through 12s. All students should practice any facts that they don't know quickly and confidently.

Chapter 1: Place Value, Addition, and Subtraction to One Million
We will review place value through the hundred millions, compare numbers, and round. Many of these concepts should be review. On most days, students are given a Standards Practice sheet to do for homework. The homework is practice based on the day's lessons. Students should complete this work on their own, without assistance from parents. All homework needs to reflect the student's learning.
