Unit 6-- More Operations

In this unit, students compare different approaches to solving the same problem and reflect on which strategies are more efficient and appropriate. Children continue to take inventory of known multiplication facts, which can then be used to derive remaining unknown facts. They model multistep number stories with one or more equations and represent the unknown quantities with letters. Students are also introduced to the order of operations and learn how parentheses function as grouping symbols that affect the order of operations.

**Key Topics:**

- Multiplication Fact Strategies
- Relationship between Multiplication and Division
- Solving Multistep Problems
