Learning Targets and Learning Criteria | |||||||

- Solve multi-step word problems (i.e., up to 3 steps) that involve the four operations using strategies for this grade level (e.g., rectangular arrays, area models, properties of operations, etc.).
- Represent a multi-step word problem using equations involving a variable represented by a letter for the unknown number.
- Interpret remainders that result from multi-step word problems.
- Assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies and mental computation.
- Use the four operations to solve word problems involving money including whole numbers only.
- Apply an understanding of addition and subtraction, place value, and flexibility with multiple strategies to use the standard algorithms for addition and subtraction.
- Determine if a given equation is true or false by comparing, composing, and/or decomposing the numbers without solving.
- Compare the two sides of an equation to determine the unknown value without solving.
- Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances (i.e., inch, feet, yard, mile; millimeter, centimeter, meter, kilometer), including problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit, involving whole numbers only.
- Observe and describe some basic forms of energy, including light, heat, sound, electrical, and the energy of motion (mechanical).
- Identify examples of these energy forms in their life and in the natural world.
- Compare and contrast these types of energy.
- Review how light travels in a straight path until interrupted by an object.
- Review how light passes through other objects (transparent, translucent, opaque).
- Review how light reflects, bends, and absorbs.
- Investigate the production of sound (e.g., tuning forks, hollow tubes, vocal cords, or water bottles filled with different amounts of water).
- Explain that sound is produced by vibrating objects.
- Investigate variations in pitch (e.g., water bottle liquids, rulers, straws, stretched rubber bands).
- Explain that pitch depends on the speed (fast and slow) an object vibrates and the measurements (size and length) of the object.
