Unit/ Module 1

• Create number cubes or spinners and have the student identify the place value and value of different digits in that number.
• Roll or pick numbers to create decimals. Add, subtract, multiply, or divide the decimals.
• Find the batting averages or other statistics in the sports section of a newspaper and add or subtract the statistics.
• Estimate and find the sums and differences of items at the store and in restaurants.
• Practice basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts.
• Roll or pick numbers to create decimals. Compare and order the numbers.
• Choose a four-digit number. Multiply and divide by powers of 10 (10, 100, 1,000, etc.) by moving the decimal point left or right as appropriate.

• Choose a four-digit number. Multiply and divide by powers of 10 (10, 100, 1,000, etc.) by moving the decimal point left or right as appropriate.
• Create number cubes or spinners and have the student identify the place value and value of different digits in that number.
• Compare the estimated volume of a carton or bottle of liquid (such as 1/2 gallon juice or milk or two liter bottle of lemonade) in cubic inches or centimeters to its stated volume in ounces or milliliters. - Make up numbers, roll numbers with dice, or find numbers (on labels) and compare them.
• Create rules (ex. n = 3) and have your student extend the number pattern (3, 6, _ , _).
• Create a number pattern and have your student write the rule. - Create an input/ output machine (function table) for a given rule and have the student fill in the missing Inputs and Outputs.
• Create an input/ output machine (function table) for an unknown rule and have the student fill in the missing Inputs and Outputs and write the rule.
• Find numbers and write them in expanded form.
• Draw pictures and make models of numbers. - Practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts.

Unit/ Module 3

• Create or pick numbers to make fractions. Add, subtract, or simplify the fractions that you find.
• Find examples of fractions around the house or neighborhood. Add, subtract, multiply, divide or simplify the fractions that you find.
• Create numbers to use in fractions. Draw these fractions as parts of a whole or set.
• Use measuring cups when baking or cooking.
• Draw different shapes. Divide them into different fractions.

Unit/ Module 4

 Find examples of fractions around the house or neighborhood. Add, subtract, multiply, divide or simplify the fractions that you find. Create numbers to use in fractions. Draw these fractions as parts of a whole or set. Use measuring cups when baking or cooking. Identify the use of decimals in sporting events and in newspapers. Draw different shapes. Divide them into different fractions. Practice multiplication and division facts.

Unit/ Module 5

 Find examples of fractions around the house or neighborhood. Add, subtract, multiply, divide or simplify the fractions that you find. Draw different shapes. Divide them into different fractions. Practice multiplication and division facts. Find the volume of real-world objects in your home. Compare the estimated volume of a carton or bottle of liquid (such as 1/2 gallon juice or milk or two liter bottle of lemonade) in cubic inches or centimeters to its stated volume in ounces or milliliters. Name two-dimensional figures and find examples at home. Draw different polygons within a piece of triangle grid paper, or use combinations of triangles to create other polygons. Make flash cards of different geometric figures and their properties. Identify, describe, and different household objects as two-dimensional figures. Use a compass or a computer to draw geometric figures. Module 2 lesson videos
