STANDARD CONNECTIONS TO LESSON:
• Common Core:
• 3.OA.4. Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 × ? = 48, 5 = _ ÷ 3, 6 × 6 = ?
• 4.NBT.2. Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.5.OA.1. Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
• 4.NBT.4. Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
• 5. NBT. 3 Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
• 5.NBT.5. Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
• NCTM: Numbers and Operations- Understand operations how they relate to one another. While addition and subtraction is for K-2, the time challenge makes this appropriate for grades 3-6.
NCTM: Understand meanings of operations and how they relate to one another
Pre-K–2 Expectations: In pre-K through grade 2 all students should–
◦ understand various meanings of addition and subtraction of whole numbers and the relationship between the two operations;
◦ understand the effects of adding and subtracting whole numbers;
◦ understand situations that entail multiplication and division, such as equal groupings of objects and sharing equally.
Grades 3–5 Expectations: In grades 3–5 all students should–
• understand various meanings of multiplication and division;
• understand the effects of multiplying and dividing whole numbers;
• identify and use relationships between operations, such as division as the inverse of multiplication, to solve problems;
• understand and use properties of operations, such as the distributivity of multiplication over addition.
