During the first semester students will read, write, and identify the place value of whole numbers through thousands and compare numbers. They will use a number line and place value to order
numbers through thousands. Round numbers to the nearest tens and hundreds. Students will also manipulate numbers to 1000 using knowledge of hundreds, tens, and ones. The students will demonstrate problem solving through the four-step plan. Students will add up to 4 digits with regrouping. They will use strategies to subtract mentally, estimate differences using rounding, and subtract with regrouping up to four digit numbers. Students will use models and arrays to explore multiplication and division, relate multiplication and addition, and make tablets and models to solve multiplication and division problems. Students will explore how division and multiplication are related.
During the second semester, students will continue to use different strategies, such as properties, arrays, doubling and decomposing factors to learn multiplication. They will also use different strategies, including arrays, repeated subtraction, drawings, known facts, patterns, or properties to learn division word problems to demonstrate skills. Students will represent one and two step word problems using equations with a variable and use logical reasoning to solve problems. In the second semester the students will learn fractions, representing fractions on a number line. They will use models to find equivalent fractions, compare two fractions, and express whole numbers as fractions. Students will tell time to the nearest minute, and determine time intervals. Students will draw, organize, and analyze data in line plots. Students will measure and compare length and represent it on a number line to the nearest half and quarter inch and display measurement data to fractions of an inch. Students will explore finding the perimeter and area of a figure using addition or multiplication. They will explore angles of two dimensional figures, describe and classify polygons by their attributes. Lastly they will identify, describe, and classify quadrilaterals by the attributes, recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
Students will study Arizona with an integrated approach considering the following factors throughout the school year. Researching and examining the contributions of various cultural and ethnic groups including the 22 Indian Nations that reside in Arizona. Economic, political, and geographic elements. Structure of the state and local governments. Roles and responsibilities as citizens of Arizona. Examination of primary and secondary sources including written and oral histories, images, current events, and artifacts. Disciplinary skills and processes including change and continuity over time, multiple perspectives, using and understanding sources, and cause and effect
