Unit 5 Place Value in Whole Numbers and Decimals

Dear Families,

In unit 5, children will review place value up to 5-digit whole numbers. They will read, write, compare, and order these numbers before they begin to explore larger numbers.

In second grade, children studied decimals by working with money. In this unit, they will gradually extend their knowledge of decimals in the following ways:

  • through concrete models, such as base-10 blocks
  • by writing decimal values in three ways (0.1, one-tenth, 1/10)
  • by comparing and ordering numbers with symbols (<, >, =)

Please follow this link to view vocabulary used in the unit as well as Do-Anytime Activity suggestions.

Linear Measures and Area Unit

It was great to see many parents attend the Grade 3 drop-in Math Morning last Wednesday. We will invite you in again next semester to have another look at our approach to mathematics at IST.

Our current math unit focuses on linear measurement, area, and volume. Please follow this link to the EDM family letter for key vocabulary terms and do-anytime activities:
