We have been covering the standards of being able to solve problems using all four operations and identifying factors and multiples. These concepts fall under the essential standard: Operations and Algebraic Thinking. Operations and Algebraic Thinking means that students should be able to use all four operations to solve and justify mathematical problems. Operations and Algebraic Thinking also includes being able to generate and analyze number and shape patterns. This involves finding a rule and showing the rule by writing an equation with variables, finding a shape pattern that follows a given rule and being able to describe features of a pattern. Looking ahead we will begin the standard of Number and Operations in Base Ten. This standard means that a student recognizes that a digit in one place represents ten times what is represented in the place to its right. A student should be able to write base-ten numerals for multi-digit numbers, read and write number names for multi-digit numbers, use expanded form, compare two multi-digit numbers  using the symbols > , <  and =.  Students should be able to round multi-digit numbers to any place. 
As a reminder, your child will be given a math worksheet on Monday. This worksheet is due on Thursday.
