In this course, students will continue to expand their understanding of mathematical concepts, which are organized according to the following categories: number and operations, algebra, measurement, and data analysis. Within each category, concepts are developed through the mathematical processes of problem solving, reasoning, communication, connections, and representations. Building both conceptual knowledge and procedural fluency supports the students development of mathematical thinking and reasoning in solving various problems of authentic contexts. The Scott Foresman and Addison Wesley series textbook, enVisionMATH, is the primary resource for this course. Students will continue to study number concepts, such as comparing and ordering whole numbers through 100. Students will also continue to add and subtract whole numbers through 18. Next, students will extend their understanding of number concepts by counting money and will engage in hands-on learning of measurement by finding length, capacity, weight, mass, time, and temperature using the appropriate tools and units. Students will connect numbers to statistics as they learn to gather data, display data in graphs, and interpret the information. Students will expand their knowledge of fractions by learning that they are equal parts of an object. Finally, students will extend their understanding of operations to include the addition and subtraction of two-digit whole numbers.
