Unit 1: Extending Understanding of Base-Ten Notation:
Students extend their understanding of the base-ten system. This includes ideas of counting in fives, tens, and multiples of hundreds, tens, and ones, as well as number relationships involving these units, including comparing. Students understand multi-digit numbers (up to 1000) written in base-ten notation, recognizing that the digits in each place represent amounts of thousands, hundreds, tens, or ones (e.g., 853 is 8 hundreds + 5 tens + 3 ones).
The ways that you can support your child in this unit:
- Ask your child to read 3- and 4-digit numbers out loud
- Search for large numbers and ask, “How could the numbers be rearranged? Would that change the number’s value?”
- Have your child explain or show how place value works to compare numbers
