**4.1 Math Curriculum-**Unit 3: Fraction Equivalents

**This Week:**

- Students will review what a fraction is, as well as the main parts of a fraction (numerator and denominator) and what they represent in relation to the whole
- Students will learn the foundational skills to determine when fractions are equivalent to one another.
- Students will learn the different ways to represent a fraction
- Students will compare two fractions with different numerators and denominators.
- Students will take their Unit 3 assessment
*(study guides went home last Friday)*

__Unit Vocabulary:__denominator, equivalent fractions, numerator, greatest common factor, simplest form, least common multiple, benchmark fractions,

__4.1 Standards for Unit 2:__**All standards will be a focus this week*

*4.NF.1 -*Explain why two or more fractions are equivalent by using visual fraction models. Focus attention on how the number and size of the parts differ.

*4.NF.2 -*Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, by using visual fraction models, by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, <, or = and justify the conclusion.

**4.2 Math Curriculum:**

**: Unit 7 - Angle Measurement**

__This Week__- In this sub-unit of Measurement, the focus will be on angle measurement. We will focus on the circle as being the basis for measuring angles, how to use a protractor, and finding missing angle measurements.
- A quiz will be given on Friday, Decemebr 16 which will cover the three standards we will be focusing on. Upon return from the winter break, students will learn the remaining standards from this unit which will cover customary and metric conversions, area and perimeter, as well as creating, analyzing, and answering questions from a line plot graph.

**Unit 3: Multiplying and Dividing Decimals**

5.1 Math Curriculum -

5.1 Math Curriculum -

**This Week:**- Students will be dividing decimals by whole numbers, using repeated subtraction as a strategy to check their work.
- Students will be dividing decimals by decimals, and understanding how dividing decimals is different than addition and multiplication (when placing the decimal in the answer)
- Students will divide decimals using visual models
- Students will take their Unit 3 assessment
*(study guides went home last Friday)*

__Unit Vocabulary:__dividend, division, divisor, exponent, factor, measurement division (or repeated subtraction), multiple , multiplier, partial products, partition/partitive division (or fair-sharing) , place value, power of ten, product, quotient, remainder

__5.1 Standards for Unit 1:__**All standards will be a focus this week*

*5.NBT.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

*5.NBT.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.
