• Math is all about noticing patterns and relationships in numbers and geometric objects. This year, we will learn concepts focusing on numbers and operations, geometry, fractions, measurement, and data. We will also learn how to think and reason using the 8 Mathematical Practices. Here they are, along with "kid friendly" terms:

    1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them: I can solve problems without giving up.

    2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively: I can thing about numbers in many ways.

    3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others: I can explain my thinking and try to understand others.

    4. Model with mathematics: I can show my work in many ways.

    5. Use appropriate tools strategically: I can use math tools and explain why I used them.

    6. Attend to precision: I can work carefully and check my work.

    7. Look for and make use of structure: I can use what I know to solve new problems.

    8. Look for and make sense of regularity in repeated reasoning: I can solve problems by looking for rules and patterns.
