NUMBER AND OPERATIONS

Enduring Understandings

Essential Questions How is math relevant to me? - relate and apply concepts & skills to daily life What do numbers convey? - identify amount (cardinal) - name position (ordinal) - indicate location (nominal) How can numbers be expressed, ordered, and compared? - read and write positive numbers, decimals, and fractions - sequence numbers: zero through one billion - compare quantities as more, less, equal (>, <, =)

Numbers can represent quantity, position, location, & relationships.

Numbers can be classified by attributes.

What are properties of whole numbers? - understand odd and even - identify prime and composite - create figurate numbers (ex: square, triangular) What are different ways to count? - count all - count on - count back - skip count - count groups What are efficient ways to count? - count up (or back) from largest number - count sets of items - count to/using landmark numbers (ex: 10, 25, 50, 100)

Counting finds out the answer to “how many” in objects/sets.

ALGEBRA

Enduring Understandings

Essential Questions Where are patterns in nature, architecture, music, words, and numbers? - identify patterns in daily life and through integrated classroom studies What is the repeating and/or increasing unit in the pattern? - identify and continue numerical sequences - identify and continue figure patterns What strategies can be used to continue a sequence? - express pattern as a rule (ex: frame & arrows, what’s my rule?) - use a rule to determine unknowns (ex: complete a function table) How does finding patterns help in counting and/or computation? - problem solve in context

Patterns can be found in many forms. Patterns can grow and repeat.

Patterns can be generalized.

Mathematical expressions represent relationships.

How is an equation like a balance scale? - understand equal to mean both sides of the number model have an equivalent value How can relationships be expressed symbolically? - use and interpret notation: >, <, =, ≠

Number patterns and relationships can be represented using variables.
