## Term 3

__Fractions and Decimals__

**Grade 4 students this term will:**

• demonstrate an understanding of fractions less than or equal to one by using concrete and pictorial representations to:

- name and record fractions for the parts of a whole or a set

- compare and order fractions

- model and explain that for different wholes, two identical fractions may not represent the same quantity

- provide examples of where fractions are used

• describe and represent decimals (tenths and hundredths) concretely, pictorially, and symbolically

• relate decimals to fractions (to hundredths)

• demonstrate an understanding of addition and subtraction of decimals (limited to hundredths) by

- using compatible numbers

- estimating sums and differences

- using mental math strategies to solve problems

**Grade 5 students this term will:**

• demonstrate an understanding of fractions by using concrete and pictorial representations to create sets of equivalent fractions and compare fractions with like and unlike denominators.

• describe and represent decimals (tenths, hundredths, thousandths) concretely, pictorially, and symbolically.

• relate decimals to fractions (to thousandths)

• compare and order decimals (to thousandths) by using benchmarks, place value, equivalent decimals

• demonstrate an understanding of addition and subtraction of decimals (limited to thousandths)

__Measurement__

Length, Perimeter, Area, Volume and Capacity (continuation from Term 2)

__Measurement__**Grade 4 students this term will:**

• demonstrate an understanding of area of regular and irregular 2-D shapes by

• recognizing that area is measured in square units

• selecting and justifying referents for the units cm2 or m2

• estimating area by using referents for cm2 or m2

• determining and recording area (cm2 or m2)

• constructing different rectangles for a given area (cm2 or m2) in order to demonstrate that many different rectangles may have the same area

**Grade 5**

**students this term will:**• design and construct different rectangles given either perimeter or area, or both (whole numbers) and draw conclusions

• demonstrate an understanding of measuring length (mm) by selecting and justifying referents for the unit mm

• modelling and describing the relationship between mm and cm units, and between mm and m units

• demonstrate an understanding of volume by selecting and justifying referents for cm3 or m3 units

• estimating volume by using referents for cm3 or m3

• measuring and recording volume (cm3 or m3)

• constructing rectangular prisms for a given volume

• demonstrate an understanding of capacity by describing the relationship between mL and L

• selecting and justifying referents for mL or L units

• estimating capacity by using referents for mL or L

• measuring and recording capacity (mL or L)
