In this course, the student will continue to expand upon his or her understanding of mathematical concepts, which are organized according to the following categories: number and operations, geometry, measurement, data analysis, and probability. 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 begin the semester by applying their understanding of numbers and patterns to geometric concepts in two and three dimensions. Next, students will build upon their prior knowledge of fractions as equal parts of a whole before they explore whole numbers and parts of numbers. Students will measure length, area, capacity, weight, time, and temperature using the appropriate tools and units. Students will also connect numbers to statistics as they learn to gather data, display data in graphs, and interpret the information. By the end of the course, students will extend their understanding of whole numbers to include numbers up to 1,000 and learn to add and subtract three-digit numbers. Students will also begin to approach the concepts of multiplication and division of whole numbers.
