## Math Program Overview:

Operations and Algebraic Thinking

• Write and interpret numerical expressions.
• Analyze patterns and relationships.

Number and Operations in Base Ten

• Understand the place value system.
• Perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths.

Number and Operations - Fractions

• Use equivalent fractions as a strategy to add and subtract fractions.
• Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions.

Measurement and Data

• Convert like measurement units within a given measurement system.
• Represent and interpret data.
• Geometric measurement:  understand concepts of volume and relate volume to multiplication and to addition.

Geometry

• Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
• Classify two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties.

## Standards of Mathematical Practices:

Not only must students become proficient in the content standards of the Iowa Core, but they must be able to solve problems using the following standards of mathematical practice.

1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
4. Model with mathematics.
5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
6. Attend to precision.
7. Look for and make use of structure.
8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
