Grade 6 - Oregon Common Core State Standards of Mathematics

A Sample of What Your Child Will Be Working on in 6th Grade

**Understanding ratios and rates, and solving problems involving proportional relationships (e.g., if it took 7 hours to mow 4 lawns, then at that rate, how many lawns could be mowed in 35 hours?  At what rate were lawns being mowed?)

**Dividing fractions and solving related word problems (e.g., how wide is a rectangular strip of land with length ¾ mile and area ½ square mile?)

Grade 5 - Oregon Common Core State Standards of Mathematics

Main Focus

*Fluency with fractions, mainly addition and subtraction.  Limited amount of multiplication and division.

EXAMPLES: Like denominators (bottom numbers)

Steps to solve

  1. add top numbers
  2. bottom stays the same
  3. reduce all fractions to simplest form
    • 2/3 + 2/3 = 4/3 then reduce to 1 1/3

Unlike denominators

Steps to solve

Grade 4 - Oregon Common Core State Standards of Mathematics

Place Value

  • Know place value up to one million.
  • Know multiplication – arrays, equal sized groups, area models
    • Distributive property
    • 4-digit by 1-digit problems
    • Factors and multiples
    • Generate and analyze patterns
    • 2-digit by 2-digit problems
  • Use ALL 4 operations with whole numbers to solve problems (word problems, multi-step word problems)

Grade 3 - Oregon Common Core State Standards of Mathematics

In grade 3 there are four critical areas of focus:

  1. Multiplication and division up to 100
  2. Fractions, especially unit fractions (1/2   1/3   ¼ …)
  3. Rectangular arrays and area  
  4. Two-dimensional shapes… describing and analyzing them

More specific objectives are:

Grade 2 - Oregon Common Core State Standards of Mathematics

Operations & Algebraic Thinking

  • Understand and solve problems involving addition and subtraction.
    • Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems.
  • Add and subtract within 20.
    • Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By the end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
    • Determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members.

Kindergarten - Oregon Common Core State Standards of Mathematics

Counting and cardinality:

  • Know number names and the count sequence.
    • Count to 100 by ones and tens
    • Count forward beginning from any number
    • Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent numbers with objects.
  • Count and tell the number of objects.
    • Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities: connect counting to cardinality.
