Learning Targets and Learning Criteria | ||

- Decompose a mixed number into a sum of fractions equal to 1 and a fraction less than 1 to find and equivalent fraction to replace the mixed number in an addition or subtraction situation.
- Find equivalent sums or differences by converting fractions greater than 1 to mixed numbers by decomposing the fraction into a sum of fractions equal to 1 and fractions less than 1.
- Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators using equivalent fractions, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
- Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions and mixed numbers with like denominators using visual fraction models (i.e., circular models, rectangular models, and number line models) and/or equations.
- Create a line plot to display measurement data including fraction units of halves, quarters, and eighths.
- Use the measurement data on a line plot to solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators.
- 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.
