Number Sense 1.6 - Write tenths and hundredths in decimal and fraction notations and know the fraction and decimal equivalents for halves and fourths (e.g., 1/2 = 0.5 or .50; 7/4 = 1 3/4 = 1.75).

Number Sense 3.2 - Demonstrate an understanding of, and the ability to use, standard algorithms for multiplying a multidigit number by a two-digit number and for dividing a multidigit number by a one-digit number; use relationships between them to simplify computations and to check results.
Number Sense 3.3 - Solve problems involving multiplication of multidigit numbers by two-digit numbers.
Number Sense 3.4 - Solve problems involving division of multidigit numbers by one-digit numbers.
NUMBER SENSE 4.0: Students know how to factor small whole numbers:
Number Sense 4.1 - Understand that many whole numbers break down in different ways (e.g., 12 = 4 x 3 = 2 x 6 = 2 x 2 x 3).
Number Sense 4.2 - Know that numbers such as 2, 3, 5, 7, and 11 do not have any factors except 1 and themselves and that such numbers are called prime numbers.
ALGEBRA AND FUNCTIONS 1.0: Students use and interpret variables, mathematical symbols, and properties to write and simplify expressions and sentences:
Algebra and Functions 1.1 - Use letters, boxes, or other symbols to stand for any number in simple expressions or equations (e.g., demonstrate an understanding and the use of the concept of a variable).
Algebra and Functions 1.2 - Interpret and evaluate mathematical expressions that now use parentheses.
Algebra and Functions 1.3 - Use parentheses to indicate which operation to perform first when writing expressions containing more than two terms and different operations.
Algebra and Functions 1.4 - Use and interpret formulas (e.g., area = length x width or A = lw) to answer questions about quantities and their relationships.
Algebra and Functions 1.5 - Understand that an equation such as y = 3x + 5 is a prescription for determining a second number when a first number is given.
ALGEBRA AND FUNCTIONS 2.0: Students know how to manipulate equations:
Algebra and Functions 2.1 - Know and understand that equals added to equals are equal.
Algebra and Functions 2.2 - Know and understand that equals multiplied by equals are equal.
MEASUREMENT AND GEOMETRY 1.0: Students understand perimeter and area:
Measurement and Geometry 1.1 - Measure the area of rectangular shapes by using appropriate units, such as square centimeter (cm2), square meter (m2), square kilometer (km2), square inch (in2), square yard (yd2), or square mile (mi2).
Measurement and Geometry 1.2 - Recognize that rectangles that have the same area can have different perimeters.
Measurement and Geometry 1.3 - Understand that rectangles that have the same perimeter can have different areas.
Measurement and Geometry 1.4 - Understand and use formulas to solve problems involving perimeters and areas of rectangles and squares. Use those formulas to find the areas of more complex figures by dividing the figures into basic shapes.
MEASUREMENT AND GEOMETRY 2.0: Students use two-dimensional coordinate grids to represent points and graph lines and simple figures:
Measurement and Geometry 2.1 - Draw the points corresponding to linear relationships on graph paper (e.g., draw 10 points on the graph of the equation y = 3x and connect them by using a straight line).
Measurement and Geometry 2.2 - Understand that the length of a horizontal line segment equals the difference of the x-coordinates.
Measurement and Geometry 2.3 - Understand that the length of a vertical line segment equals the difference of the y-coordinates.
