Checks for Understanding (Formative/Summative Assessment)


Compose and Decompose - Compose and decompose quantities according to place value.


Decimal Notation - Understand decimal notation as an extension of the base-ten number system


Multiply - Multiply two- and three-digit whole numbers.


Reliable Algorithm - Understand and use a reliable algorithm for multiplying multi-digit numbers and dividing numbers by a single-digit divisor accurately and efficiently.


Zero - Understand that division by zero is undefined.


Divide - Divide three-digit whole numbers by one-digit divisors fluently with pencil and paper.


Factors - Identify factors of whole numbers and model factors and products beyond basic multiplication facts using arrays and area models.


Equivalent Forms - Generate equivalent forms of whole numbers, decimals, and common fractions (e.g., 1/10, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4).


Compare - Compare equivalent forms whole numbers, fractions, and decimals to each other and to benchmark numbers


Use Models - Use models to understand division as the inverse of multiplication, partitioning, and repeated subtraction.


Compare Fractions - Use models, benchmarks, and equivalent forms to compare fractions/decimals and locate them on the number line.
