Checks for Understanding (Formative/Summative Assessment)


Prime - Identify prime numbers up to 50.


Use Prime Factorization - Use the prime factorization of two whole numbers to determine the greatest common factor and the least common multiple.


Fractions and Decimals - Use visual models, benchmarks, and equivalent forms to add and subtract commonly used fractions and decimals.


Factoring - Use divisibility rules to factor numbers.


Estimation - Make reasonable estimates of fraction and decimal sums and differences.


Mixed Numbers - Add and subtract mixed numbers.


Decimal Point - Understand the placement of the decimal point in calculations of multiplication and long division, including the placement in the estimation of the answer.


Division by Zero - Understand that division by zero is undefined.


Negative Numbers - Explore numbers less than 0 by extending the number line through familiar applications (e.g., temperatures below zero, owing money, measuring elevation below sea level).


Exponential Notation - Use exponential notation to represent repeated multiplication of whole numbers.
