Dad's Math Rules
Students will be introduced to eight simple rules for multiplication, including helpful ways to remember how to multiply. Visit the Dad's Worksheets site for more details.
Unit 1: Place Value, Addition and Subtraction
Students will be able to read, write, round, and compare large numbers to millions based on their understanding of place value. Using the standard algorithm, students will be fluent in addition and subtraction of multi-digit numbers. Furthermore, they will solve multi-step word problems using variables to represent unknown quantities.
Unit 2: Unit Conversions Using Metric Measurement
Students will be able to convert metric units of length, mass, and capacity from larger units to smaller units.
Unit 3: Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division
Students will be able to solve multi-step word problems using the four operations and interpret remainders. They will also be able to find all factor pairs up to one hundred. The students will multiply and divide multi-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. They will also Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models. Students will be able to apply area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems.
Unit 4: Angle Measure and Plane Figures
Students will be able to draw and identify points, lines, line segments, rays, angles, perpendicular and parallel lines. Using their knowledge of types of lines and types of angles be able to classify two-dimensional figures. In addition to learning how to measure angles students will solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure.
Unit 5: Fractions
Students will be able to find equivalent fractions, add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers, compare fractions, multiply a fraction by a whole number. During this unit students will look for and generate patterns.
Unit 6: Decimal Fractions
Students will be able to represent fractions with denominators of 10 or 100 and covert to a decimal form. They will be able to compare two decimals to the hundredths.
Unit 7: Exploring Measurement with Multiplication
Students will be able to compare relative size of units of measure from larger to smaller units. Students will als be able to solve multistep word problems using all four operations.
