   Number and Operations---Fractions

  • Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering.
  • Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers.
  • Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions.

     Measurement and Data

  •  Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.
  • Represent and interpret data.
  • Geometric measurement:  understand concepts of angle and measure angles.

     Geometry

  • Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.
