MODULE 1 PLACE VALUE, PATTERN RULES
MODULE 1 STANDARDS: The main focus of Module 1 is place value understanding. Students will work on reading, writing and analyzing large numbers. Students will order, compare and round 5digit numbers. Students will also be investigating square number patterns that follow a specific mathematical rule.
Place Value (Module 1)


Rounding Numbers (Module 1)


MODULE 2  MULTIDIGIT ADDITION, CONVERTING TIME
The main focus of Module 2 is Addition strategies. Students will use their previous understanding of rounding to estimate reasonableness of answers. Students will use the traditional addition algorithm with regrouping across place values. The third standard of this unit will focus on converting time measurements. Students will convert hours to minutes and minutes to hours.
Addition Strategies (Module 2)


Time Conversion (Module 2)


MODULE 3 FACTORS, MULTIPLES, MULTIPLICATION, FRACTIONS
Students will find factor pairs of numbers and they will need to be able to identify if a number is prime or composite. Students will start developing strategies for multiplication including breaking up a number into different factors in order to multiply and also using the doubling and halving strategy. Students will begin reviewing fraction concepts by comparing and ordering fractions.

MODULE 4 MULTIDIGIT SUBTRACTION, MULTIPLICATION & DIVISION
Students will use the standard subtraction algorithm to subtract large numbers by borrowing across place values. Students can also solve multistep word problems involving subtraction. Students will begin to solve multiplication and division problems. This is the key time students should begin memorizing math facts.
Subtraction Regrouping (Module 4)




MODULE 5  EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS, ADDING FRACTIONS, ANGLES
Students will use area models to find equivalent fractions. Students will also compare common fractions. Students will begin to add fractions using the standard algorithm remembering to keep the same denominator but add numerators. Students will use a protractor to measure acute, right and obtuse angles. Students will calculate angles measurements using addition and subtraction.
Equivalent Fractions & Adding/Subtracting Fractions (Module 5)


Types of Angles, Measuring Angles (Module 5)




MODULE 6 TAPE DIAGRAMS, ADDING MIXED NUMBERS
Students learn about the tape diagram strategy for solving word problems. Students will use tape diagrams to solve word problems for addition, multiplication, subtraction and division. Students will be introduced to mixed numbers and how to add mixed numbers with like denominators.
Using Tape Diagrams (bar models) to help solve word problems (Module 6)


Adding Mixed Numbers Convert mixed and improper fractions (Module 6)

Subtracting Mixed Numbers (Module 7)


MODULE 8  6 DIGIT NUMBERS, ROUNDING NUMBERS
Students will review the format of large numbers and round 6 digit numbers to any place value. Students will be introduced to the metric system. Students will learn about converting millimeters to centimeters, and centimeters to meters.
Place Value (See Module 1 for review)
Metric System (Module 8)


MODULE 9  AREA AND PERIMETER , MULTIPLY MIXED NUMBERS
Students will learn how to calculate the area and perimeter of a rectangle. Students will use their knowledge of area and perimeter to solve word problems. Students will also be able to multiply a whole number by a fraction. They can solve word problems with fractions and whole numbers. Students will be introduced to the customary measurement system. Students will be able to convert inches to feet, feet to yards and yards to miles.
Area & Perimeter using formulas to determine area & perimeter of rectangles (Module 9)


Multiplying Mixed Numbers (Module 9)
MODULE 10  4 DIGIT BY 1 DIGIT DIVISION, LINES, RAYS, AND SYMMETRY
Students will use the traditional and partial products algorithm to divide 4 digit numbers by a 1 digit number. Students will use the acronym DMSB (Dragons Mean Serious Business) to help them to remember to divide, multiply, subtract and bring down with long division. This unit students will also focus on geometry concepts. They will learn the difference between line, rays and line segments. Students will learn what lines of symmetry are and they will create an art project where they create a symmetrical pattern with their names.
Division (Module 10)


Types of Lines


MODULE 11 & 12  DECIMALS & CUSTOMARY MEASUREMENT
Students will learn how decimals are whole numbers broken into fractions of ten. They will learn that 1/10 is the same as .10 and they will compare decimals up to the thousandths place. Students will also learn to add and subtract fractions. They need to always to remember to line up the decimal, regardless of the number of digits in the place value. Students will be introduced to the customary units of measurement in order to prepare for customary measurement conversions in 5th grade.
