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.
- Review how things that give off light often give off heat.
- Review how heat is produced when two objects rub against each other.
- Investigate heat energy by measuring temperature changes in a liquid.
- Compare observations with classmates explaining any differences that occur.
- Collect and record temperature readings during investigations in charts, tables, and graphs.
- Investigate which materials are the best conductors of heat (e.g., clay, metal, and glass).
- Investigate which materials are non-conductors/insulators of heat (e.g., plastic, wood, styrofoam).
- Make inferences about observations made during conductivity investigations.
- Form conclusions about which materials conduct heat well or poorly based on investigations.
- Investigate and diagram the direction of heat flow (hot à cold).
- Record observations of heat transfer (in the form of temperature changes) within tables, charts, and graphs.
- Analyze and form conclusions based on their recorded observations and data.
