1st Nine Weeks (8/27/13-10/25/13)

(Mathematical Practices First, Illustrative Math, Process vs. Product the first 6 weeks)

Number and Operations in Base Ten
Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers.
NBT.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 =10 by applying concepts of place value and division.

EM .9 Powers of 10: To introduce exponential notation for powers of 10 as a way of naming the values of places in our base-ten system.

Saxon: 36, 97

NBT.2 Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.

EM 2.3 Place Value in Whole Numbers: To provide practice identifying values of digits in numbers up to one billion; and to provide practice reading and writing numbers up to one billion.
EM 2.4 Place Value with a Calculator: To provide place-value skills using a calculator routine; and to review reading and writing large numbers
EM 5.8 Big Numbers: To provide practice reading, writing, and comparing large numbers using patterns in the base-ten place-value system.
EM 5.11 Comparing Data: To guide students as they look up and compare numerical data, including geographical measurements.

Saxon: 21, 51, 52, 53

NBT.3 Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.

EM 5.10 Rounding and Reporting Large Numbers: To discuss sensible ways of reporting a count when a large number of items has been counted; and to practice rounding numbers.

Saxon: 33

Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.
NBT.4 Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

EM 2.7 Addition of Multidigit Numbers: To review the partial sums algorithm used to solve multidigit addition problems; and to introduce column-addition method similar to the traditional addition algorithm.
EM 2.9 Subtraction of Multidigit Numbers: To review the trade first and counting-up methods, and to introduce the partial differences method of solving multidigit subtraction problems; and to provide practice estimating differences for multidigit subtraction problems.

Operations and Algebraic Thinking
Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems.
OA.1 Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35
= 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.

Saxon: 26

OA.2 Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.

EM 3.1 “What’s My Rule?”: To review “What’s My Rule?” problems.
EM 3.2 Multiplication Facts: To review strategies for solving multiplication facts;
EM 3.3 Multiplication Fact Practice: To give a 50-facts test; and to provide practice with multiplication facts.
EM 3.4 More Multiplication Fact Practice: To give a 50-facts test and record the results; and to provide practice with multiplication facts.

Saxon: 22, 23, 63, 70

OA.3 Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.

EM 3.8 A Guide for Solving Number Stores: To introduce a simplified approach to solving number stories; and to provide practice determining whether number sentences are true or false.
EM 3.9 True or False Number Sentences: To review the meanings of number sentences ; and to provide practice determining whether number sentences are true or false.
EM 3.11 Open Sentences: To introduce vocabulary and notation for open sentences; and to provide practice solving open sentences.

Saxon: 33, 38, 39, 55, 59

Everyday Math Lessons Parking Lot:
    1. Introduction to the Student Reference Book (NBT.2)
2.2 Many Names for Numbers: To review equivalent names for whole numbers and name-collection boxes.
3.10 Parenthesis in Number Sentences: To review the use of parentheses in number sentences.
