Students understand the relationship between numbers,
quantities, and place value in whole numbers up to
1,000. They estimate, calculate, and solve problems
involving addition and subtraction of twoand
threedigit numbers and solve simple problems involving
multiplication and division. Students understand that
fractions and decimals may refer to parts of a set and
parts of a whole. Students solve problems by
representing, adding, and subtracting amounts of money.
They use estimation strategies in computation and
problem solving that involve numbers to the thousands
place.

simple fractions, and decimals.
Algebra and Functions
Students solve simple equations using
equal or “greater and less than” symbols. They
determine the operation (addition, subtraction,
multiplication and division) and simplify problems.
Students represent simple relationships through solving
simple word problems, and showing patterns in numbers
or sets of objects.
