-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.

-Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 x 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.

-Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.

-Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.

-Determine whether an equation is true or false by using comparative relational thinking. For example, without adding 60 and 24, determine whether the equation 60 + 24 = 57 + 27 is true or false.

-Determine the unknown whole number in an equation relating four whole numbers using comparative relational thinking. For example, solve 76 + 9 = n + 5 for n by arguing that nine is four more than five, so the unknown number must be four greater than 76.

-Identify properties and common uses of water in each of its states.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The students will:
•solve multi-step word problems (up to 3 steps) that involve multiplication and/or division using strategies for this grade level. (E.g., rectangular arrays, area models, partial products/quotients, 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. E.g.The context of a word problem must be considered when interpreting remainders. Here are some ways remainders can be addressed: 1) remainder as an answer-“How many are leftover?” 2) discard remainder leaving only the whole number answer -“How many full boxes?” 3)increase the whole number answer by one -“How many buses are needed for all students?

•assess the reasonableness of answers to multi-step word problems using estimation strategies including rounding.

•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. E.g. Use comparative relational thinking to determine the value of n.

• investigate and describe properties of water in all three states.

• identify common uses of water in all three states.

• explain the importance of water to life on Earth.
