This unit touches on the following standards from the
New Haven Mathematics Framework
which is adapted from the
Standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics:
Content Standard 1.0
Number Concepts, Arithmetic, and Operation Concepts:
Performance Standard 1.1
Students will add, subtract, multiply and divide whole numbers, with and without calculators.
Performance Standard 1.2
Students will demonstrate understanding of the vase ten place value system and use this knowledge to solve arithmetic tasks.
Content Standard 5.0
Problem Solving and Mathematical Reasoning:
Performance Standard 5.1
Students will solve problems that make significant demands in one or more of the solution process: problem formulation, problem implementation, and problem conclusion.
Performance Standard 5.2 Students will participate in the formulation of problems.
Performance Standard 5.3 Students will make the basic choices in planning and carrying out a solution.
Performance standard 5.4 Students will move beyond a particular problem by making connections, extensions, and/or generalizations.
Mathematical Skills and Tools:
Content Standard 6.0
Performance Standard 6.1
Students will add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers correctly.
Performance Standard 6.8
Students will use recall, mental computations, pencil and paper, measuring devices, mathematical texts,
manipulatives, calculators, computers, and advice from peers, as appropriate, to achieve solutions.
Content Standard 7.0
Performance Standard 7.1
Students will use appropriate mathematical terms, vocabulary, and language, based on prior conceptual work.
Performance Standard 7.3
Students will explain clearly and logically solutions to problems, and support solutions with evidence, in both oral and written form.
