    Unit 4:  (October through November)

    Operations with Decimals

    MAFS.5.NBT.2.7 - Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.

    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:
