Academic Context and Connections
Finer grained standards that are part of this one
In Grade 6, this expectation connects with applying and extending previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions.
In Grade 5, students divide whole numbers with two-digit divisors and perform operations with decimals.
Look for and make use of structure.
How does rewriting the sum of two whole numbers using the distributive property yield new understanding and insights on the sum?
In Grade 7, students apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers. Students apply the concept of greatest common factor to factor linear expressions, and extending properties of whole numbers to variable expressions.
Attend to precision.
How do operations with decimals compare and contrast to operations with whole numbers?
This expectation is in addition to the major work of the grade.
