Essential Understandings
Concrete:
- Use manipulatives to make sets of objects with a given number in each (e.g., create sets of 3 objects from a total of 15 objects).
- Count the number of created sets (above example would result in 5 sets).
- Understand the following vocabulary: divide, separate, total, etc.
- Use pictorial representations to make sets with a given number in each (e.g., create sets of 3 from a visual representation of 15 items).
- Count the number of created sets (above example would result in 5 sets).

Cluster:
Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems. (Major Cluster) : Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters. |
