In Fifth Grade
Fifth grade students added and subtracted positive rational numbers, estimated problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, and recognized the differences between additive and multiplicative patterns in a table or graph. Students also represented and solved problems involving fractions, decimals, and whole numbers within the four operations.
Multiplication at fifth grade involved multiplying three-digit by a two-digit number, decimals to the hundredths, and fractions with area models.
Division at fifth grade involved dividing whole numbers by a unit fraction, four-digit dividend and two-digit whole number divisors.
In Sixth Grade
Sixth grade students will add, subtract, multiple, and divide integers, multiply and divide positive rational numbers, and apply qualitative and quantitative reasoning to rates and ratios. Students will also solve problems related to percents that involve parts of a whole and a whole, represent a given situation using y = kx or y = x + b, and model and solve one-variable, one-step equations and inequalities.
In Seventh Grade
Seventh grade students will apply and extend understandings of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to solve problems that involve rational numbers, represent constant rates of change in various forms, solve multi-step problems involving rates, ratios, and percents, represent linear relationships in various forms, and model and solve one-variable, one-step equations and inequalities.
