Pennsylvania Math Expectations
Standards for Mathematical Practice
- Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
- Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
- Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
- Model with mathematics.
- Use appropriate tools strategically.
- Attend to precision.
- Look for and make use of structure.
- Look for and make sense of regularity in repeated reasoning.
Numbers and Operations: Base Ten and Fractions
- Apply place‐value concepts to show an understanding of operations and rounding as they pertain to whole numbers and decimals.
- Extend an understanding of operations with whole numbers to perform operations including decimals.
- Use the understanding of equivalency to add and subtract fractions.
- Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions.
Operations and Algebraic Thinking
- Interpret and evaluate numerical expressions using order of operations.
- Analyze patterns and relationships using two rules.
- Graph points in the first quadrant on the coordinate plane and interpret these points when solving real world and mathematical problems.
- Classify two‐dimensional figures into categories based on an understanding of their properties.
Measurement and Data
- Solve problems using conversions within a given measurement system.
- Represent and interpret data using appropriate scale.
- Solve problems involving computation of fractions using information provided in a line plot.
- Apply concepts of volume to solve problems and relate volume to multiplication and to addition.
