• # Relate Fractions to Decimals

Posted by Bronwyn Chen on 1/13/2020

In this unit, students will learn:

• the value of tenths and hundredths
• a number can be represented as both a fraction and a decimal (.1 =1/10 or .32 = 32/100)
• decimal notation (write numbers in standard form 0.62)
• comparisons are valid only when two decimals refer to the same whole
• Compare decimals using visual models and symbols.
• Add two fractions with unlike denominators of 10 and 100

• # Adding & Subtracting Fractions

Posted by Bronwyn Chen on 11/12/2019

Essential Questions:

• How do adding and subtracting fractions help me in everyday life?
• How can I join fractions with like denominators?
• How can I separate fractions with like denominators?
• How can I convert a fraction greater than 1 into a mixed number?
• How can I add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators?
• How can I represent unit fractions in a line plot?
• How can I add and subtract fractions found in a line plot?

In this unit, students will be able to:

• Join (compose) fractions of the same whole
• Separate (decompose) fractions of the same whole in various ways (e.g.
• Justify decompositions (e.g., by using a visual fraction model).
• Convert a fraction greater than one (formerly referred to as an improper fraction) into a sum of a whole number and a number less than one
• Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators using various strategies (e.g., replacing each number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction).
• Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators (e.g., by using visual
fraction models and equations to represent the problem.

• # Place Value, Addition, and Subtraction

Posted by Bronwyn Chen on 8/12/2019

The Essential Questions for this unit are:

• How do I recognize and read multi-digit numbers?
• How do I write and represent multi-digit numbers?
• How do I compare multi-digit numbers?
• How do I round mutli-digit numbers?
• How can I add and subtract multi-digit numbers?

What students will be able to do by the end of the unit:

• Recognize and read numbers up to 1,000,000 in word form, standard form, and expanded form
• Write and represent numbers up to 1,000,000 in word form, standard form, and expanded form
• Use place value strategies to compare and order numbers
• Round and estimate numbers
• Fluently add and subtract numbers (with regrouping) using the standard algorithm

Key Terms

Expanded Form - a way to write numbers by showing the value of each digit

Word Form - a way to write numbers by using words

Standard Form -a way to write numbers by using the digits 0-9 with each digit having a place value

Rounding - to replace a number with another number that tells about how many or how much

Estimate - a number close to an exact amount

Period - each group of three digits separated by commas in a multi-digit number

Compare - to describe whether numbers are equal to, less then, or greater than each other

Place Value - the value of a digit in a number, based on the location of the digit
