|Subject Area||Math and Science|
|Unit of Instruction||Division/ Properties of Matter|
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
Measure and compare objects and materials based on their physical properties including: mass, shape, volume, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, attraction to magnets.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
The student will:
•use manipulatives or drawings of rectangular arrays and/or area models to solve and explain division problems that involve the division of a multi-digit dividend (with up to four digits) by a one-digit divisor.
•apply an understanding of rectangular arrays and area models to connect to the partial quotients strategy.
• compare objects based on observable and measurable physical properties (shape, color, hardness, texture, odor, taste, attraction to magnets, mass, volume).
• investigate and explain that all matter has the following measurable properties: volume (takes up space) and mass (weight).
• record and compare the mass and volume of solid and liquid matter using metric units.
• record and compare the volume of regular- and irregular-shaped solids using the water displacement method.
• display data appropriately in charts, tables, and graphs.
• compare measurement data with other lab groups checking for accuracy.
• explain any differences that may have occurred across groups.
