GPS-Georgia Performance Standards

- GPS Goals
- 3rd Grade Standards
- 4th Grade Standards
- 5th Grade Standards
- Performance Standards/Tasks
- Concepts/Skills to Maintain

Goals of GPS

- Focus on ACTIVELY engaging students in development of mathematical understanding by using manipulatives
- There is a shift toward APPLYING math concepts and skills in context of authentic problems and for the students to understand the concepts rather than merely follow a sequence of procedures
- It is the CONNECTIONS, the reasoned, logical connections, that make math manageable.

Comparison of numbers

Addition and subtraction of multi-digit numbers

Length and time

Geometric Shapes

Money

Area models (arrays) of multiplication

Goals:

Students will understand place value.

Students will use decimals and fractions to represent parts of a whole.

Students will understand the four arithmetic operations for whole numbers and apply them in basic calculations, and in problem solving situations.

Students will understand length, perimeter, area, and time.

Students will broaden understanding of characteristics of previously studied geometric figures.

Students will solve problems by collecting, organizing, displaying, and interpreting data.

3rd Grade GPSAddition and Subtraction of decimals

Multiplication and division of whole numbers

Area/Perimeter

Place Value

Weight and Length

Students will MASTER the four basic operations using whole numbers.

Students will add and subtract decimals and common fractions with common denominators.

Students will understand how and when it is appropriate to use rounding.

Student will use common measurement units to determine weight.

Students will develop their understanding of measuring angles with appropriate units and tools.

Students will understand the characteristics of geometric plane and solid figures.

They will use tables, graphs, and charts to record and analyze data.

4th Grade GPS4th Notes

- Multiply and divide both one and two digit decimals by whole numbers
- Convert and use mixed numbers and improper fractions interchangeably
- Compute using order of operations, including parentheses
- Properties
- Draw angles
- Identify types of triangles based on angle measures
- Represent unknowns using symbols such and and
- Write and evaluate expressions using symbols and different values

Add/subtract decimals

Whole number and decimal comparison

Angle measurement

Length, area, and weight

Number sense

Add and subtract common fractions with like denominators

Data usage and representation

Characteristics of 2D and 3D shapes

Order of operations

Students will further develop their understanding of multiplication and division of whole numbers and decimals.

Students will understand and investigate algebraic expressions.

Students will expand their understanding of computing area and volume of simple geometric figures.

Students will understand the meaning of congruent geometric shapes and the relationship of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.

Students will use circle graphs and percentages to interpret statistical data.

5th Grade GPS5th Notes

- Multiplication and DIVISION of decimals
- Add/subtract common fractions and mixed numbers with unlike denominators
- MODEL multiplication and division of fractions
- Understand meaning of percent
- Find area of triangles and parallelograms
- Find the area of a circle
- Computer the volume of a cube and rectangular prism using formulae
- Use variables, such and n and x, for unknown quantities in algebraic expressions
- Investigate simple algebraic expressions by substituting numbers for the unknown.

GPS Summary

- APPLICATION and UNDERSTANDING are key!
- More than algorithms
- Algebra is integrated into all grade levels
- NEW concepts are expected to be taught and understood
- Performance Based Assessments -beyond the problems in the book
- HIGHER EXPECTATIONS for ALL students

The Five Stages of Teaching and Learning Math

5 Stages-Understanding

Explain the meaning of

3/4

3/4 refers to 3 equal parts or pieces when 4 equal pieces are needed to make one whole.

5 Stages-Proficiency

Simplify without errors

1) 3/4 + 1/2 =2) 5 – 2/3 =3) 1/2 ( 1 – 1/4) = 4) 4 ÷ 3/4 =

5 Stages-Application

Complete the equivalency statements.

2 1/2 gallons = ? quarts

6 3/4 days = ? hours

30.25 meters = ? centimeters

Understanding and Applying VariablesReinforcing Math Facts

Teaching Strategies:

Game Competition: Developing and implementing competitive games that incorporate essential math skills and concepts

Modeling and Experimentation: Using real, relevant, and tangible experiences to model abstract mathematical concepts

Understanding Variables

Algebra War Games:

Player A:

x

y

Player B:

Winning game rule:

2x + y

x + y

x y

Mental Math and Extended Facts

Teaching Strategy:

Mental Math Strings: Daily mental math challenges that require students to remember and manipulate numbers generated by five or six teacher lead commands.

1. How many quarts are in one gallon?

2. How many pints are in a quart?

3. How do you square a number?

4. How do you cube a number?

5. What’s the first odd whole number?

6. What’s the first even whole number?

7. How do you round a number to the nearest ten?

8. How many degrees are in a right angle?

9. How many sides are in a decagon?

10. How many vertices are in a decagon?

Mental Math Strings

Start with the number of quarts in six gallons.

Round your answer to the nearest ten.

Subtract the number of vertices in a decagon.

Square your result.

Subtract the number of degrees in a right angle.

Multiply by the second odd whole number. *

Mental Math Strings

Start with the number of quarts in six gallons.

24

20

Round your answer to the nearest ten.

10

Subtract the number of vertices in a decagon.

100

Square your result.

10

Subtract the number of degrees in a right angle.

30

Multiply by the second odd whole number. *

Mental Math Strings

Start with the number of quarts in six gallons.

Round your answer to the nearest ten.

Subtract the number of vertices in a decagon.

Square your result.

Subtract the number of degrees in a right angle.

Multiply by the second odd whole number. *

Implementing Mental Math Strings

1. Determine extended math facts you want your students to know.

2. Build your mental math strings.

3. Do one string each day.

4. Preview information in the mental math string.

5. Implement the mental math string.

6. Share results, congratulate students who succeed and encourage those who don’t.

7. Invite a student who succeeds to repeat the string in front of the class.

8. Invite students to make their own and share with the class.

Mental Math and Math Facts

Teaching Strategies:

Game Competition: Developing and implementing competitive games that incorporate essential math skills and concepts

The digit sum of 24 is 6 because 2 + 4 = 6

The digit productof 24 is 8 because 2 • 4 = 8

Proficiency with Computation, and Concepts Associated with Standards

Teaching Strategy:

Daily Warm ups, Gray-Band Computation Problems, and Computation Challenges

Dr. Thomas’s Math Challenge #1

Find the sum of the whole number factors of 32.

A) 13

B) 31

C) 63

D) 72

1. 25 + 12 = 2. 76 – 19 = 3. 23 • 11=
