Goals 

  • Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard U.S. algorithm.
  • Solve problems involving division of four-digit whole numbers divided two-digit whole numbers using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Students will be able to illustrate and explain their solutions by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
  • Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators.
  • 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. 
  • Solve real-world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.

We use Everyday Mathematics (Edition 4), which is a comprehensive Pre-K through grade 6 mathematics program developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project and published by McGraw-Hill Education
