Ø Demonstrate the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction using fact families and/or factors.
Ø Identify the correct operation(s) to solve a word problem (no more than 2 operations using +, and/or x).
Ø Solve singleand doubledigit addition and subtraction problems with and without regrouping in vertical or horizontal form.
Ø Solve problems involving multiplication through 9’s tables through 9x5
Ø Solve triple digit addition and subtraction problems without regrouping in vertical or horizontal form.
Ø Estimate sums and differences of quantities; round 2digit numbers to the nearest 10, and 3 digit numbers to the nearest 100, before computing (limit to two numbers).
Measurement
Ø Tell/show time (analog) to the minute.
Ø Find elapsed time to increments of 5 minutes (limited to 2 adjacent hours).
