### Goals

• Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison and represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
• Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1-100,  recognize that a whole number between 1 and 100 is a multiple of each of its factors, and determine whether a given whole number in the range 1-100 is prime or composite.
• Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard U.S. algorithm.
• Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
• Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators using a variety of strategies.

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.
