What my student should learn in:
CA Common Core Math Standards
Four Key Focus Areas
Four Key Focus Areas
Working with Positive and Negative Numbers including Dividing Fractions
Rates and Ratios
Write, Interpret, and Use Expressions and Equations
Geometry and Statistical Thinking Skills
12=3x 58 = x + 42
Concepts to Master
Understand Ratios
Know what a ratio is
Use ratio language correctly
Understand that the ratio 3:2 means for every 3 flowers there were 2 leaves
Understand Unit Rates
Use ratios to determine the value of one object
For example: We paid $75 for 5 hamburgers, so each hamburger was $15
Use Ratios to Solve Real World Problems
In a table with missing values, use a ratio to find the missing numbers
Solve unit rate word problems
Use ratios to convert measurements
Convert ratios to percents and know what the percent represents
3 : 5
1    3    5 3    5    7
Concepts to Master
Divide Fractions by Fractions
Fluently divide fractions by fractions
Solve word problems involving division of a fraction by a fraction or a whole number
Create a word problem to represent a given fraction divided by a fraction problem
Find Common Factors and Multiples
Find the Greatest Common Factor of any two numbers less than or equal to 100
Use the distributive property to express a number as a product of a number and the sum of two numbers: 36 = 9 (3 + 1)
Find the Least Common Multiple of any two numbers less than or equal to 12
Understand Positive and Negative Numbers
Know that a positive and negative number represents opposite values
Write, find, and explain negative numbers on a number line
Know the absolute value of a number
Use <. >, or = signs to compare negative numbers with negative numbers
Working with Expressions
Use the order of operations to simplify an expression with an exponent
Write, read, and evaluate expressions with a variable
Simplify expressions by combining like terms
Working with Equations
View the process of solving an equation like answering a question "Which value will make this equation true?"
Solve equations and word problems involving positive numbers
Use substitution to solve an equation for an unknown value
Identify Relationships between Variables
In an equation, be able to determine the independent and dependent variable
Use a table to show the relationship between the variables
3x + 5x - 8
6x = 24
X and Y
Area of Shapes
Find the area of right triangles and other triangles
Find the area of quadrilaterals
Break a polygon into triangles to find the area
Volume of Objects
Fill a rectangular prism with unit cubes to visualize volume
Apply the volume formula V = LWH
Solve word problems involving area and volume
Graph coordinates in all 4 quadrants on a coordinate plane
Draw polygons on a coordinate plane given the vertices
Represent 3-D figures as nets
Develop Statistical Vocabulary
Recognize and develop statistical questions
Understand that data has a statistical spread that can be viewed by its overall shape and measures of center
Find Measures of Center
Know and find the mean, median, and mode
Recognize that a measure of center represents the data with a single number
Recognize that a measure of variation represents how the data varies.
Display and Interpret Data
Know how to use number lines, dot plots, histograms, and box and whisker plots
Describe and summarize visual patterns of data as represented on a chart
