    Mathematics: 

    Curent Focus Standard:

    Unit 1: Understand Place Value

    Duration: Aug. 24th – Sept. 10th (14 Days)

    MAFS.5.NBT.1.1- Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left. (DOK 1)

    MAFS.5.NBT.1.2 - Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10. (DOK 2)

    MAFS.5.NBT.1.3 - Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths. a. Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form, e.g., 347.392 = 3 × 100 + 4 × 10 + 7 × 1 + 3 × (1/10) + 9 × (1/100) + 2 × (1/1000). b. Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons. (DOK 2)

    MAFS.5.NBT.1.4 - Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place. (DOK 1) Standards for Mathematical Practice Academic Vocabulary:

     

    Science: 

    Inquiry Mondays Focus Standards  (Every Monday we will work on Nature of Science concepts.)

    SC.5.N.1.1 (DOK 3) - Define a problem, use appropriate reference materials to support scientific understanding, plan and carry out scientific investigations of various types such as: systematic observations, experiments requiring the identification of variables, collecting and organizing data, interpreting data in charts, tables, and graphics, analyze information, make predictions, and defend conclusions.

    SC.5.N.1.2 (DOK 2) - Explain the difference between an experiment and other types of scientific investigation.

    SC.5.N.1.3 (DOK 2) - Recognize and explain the need for repeated experimental trials SC.5.N.1.4 (DOK 2) - Identify a control group and explain its importance in an experiment.

    SC.5.N.1.5 (DOK 2) - Recognize and explain that authentic scientific investigation frequently does not parallel the steps of "the scientific method."

    SC.5.N.1.6 (DOK 2) - Recognize and explain the difference between personal opinion/interpretation and verified observation.

    SC.5.N.2.1 (DOK 2) - Recognize and explain that science is grounded in empirical observations that are testable; explanation must always be linked with evidence.

    SC.5.N.2.2 (DOK 2) - Recognize and explain that when scientific investigations are carried out, the evidence produced by those investigations should be replicable by others.
