MATH Unit 1 - Piecing it Together
In Module 1, you will use prior knowledge of the properties involved in adding and subtracting multi-digit whole numbers to add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers with unlike denominators as well as decimals to the hundredths place. You will also solve problem situations involving fractions and decimals that include unknowns in all positions and checking the reasonableness of answers.
CCSS Standards include:
Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths.
a. Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form, e.g., 347.392 = 3 × 100 + 4 × 10 + 7 × 1 + 3 × (1/10) + 9 × (1/100) + 2 ×
b. Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place.
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.
