Math:
Recognize that each place value position is: • 10 times greater that the value to its right • 1 10 of the value of the position to its left • Read and write whole numbers through hundred million. • Use a basic fact and a pattern to multiply mentally by multiples of 10,100, and 1,000. • Fluently multiply multidigit whole numbers: • fivedigit by onedigit • threedigit by twodigit • fourdigit by twodigit • fivedigit by twodigit • Use equation, rectangular arrays, and area models to illustrate quotients. • Write and evaluate repeated factors in exponent form. • Find whole number quotients of whole numbers using: • strategies based on place value • properties of operations • relationship between multiplication and division. • Simplify numerical expressions applying order of operation rules (multiply or divide from left to right & add or subtract from left to right). • Write numerical expressions. • Evaluate numerical expressions without evaluating them. • Including expressions that may require multiplication up to 1 fraction with a denominator of 10 or less. • Interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. • Evaluate numerical expressions considering Associate, Commutative, or Distributive Properties, when applicable.
