Study Notes

Number Sense

Number Patterns

• The ability to recognize and create patterns using numbers
• Examples:
• Counting by 2s, 5s, 10s, etc.
• Identifying patterns in sequences (e.g., 2, 5, 8, 11, 14)
• Creating number patterns using shapes or colors

Ordering Numbers

• The ability to arrange numbers in a logical order
• Examples:
• Ordering numbers from least to greatest (e.g., 3, 5, 7, 9)
• Ordering numbers from greatest to least (e.g., 9, 7, 5, 3)
• Comparing numbers using greater than (>), less than (<), and equal to (=) symbols

Comparing Numbers

• The ability to determine the relationship between two or more numbers
• Examples:
• Comparing numbers using greater than (>), less than (<), and equal to (=) symbols
• Determining if a number is greater than, less than, or equal to another number
• Using benchmarks (e.g., 10, 20, 50) to compare numbers

Estimation

• The ability to make an educated guess about a number or quantity
• Examples:
• Estimating the number of objects in a group
• Estimating the result of a calculation (e.g., 4 x 6 ≈ 24)
• Rounding numbers to the nearest ten, hundred, or thousand

Place Value

• The value of a digit based on its position in a number
• Examples:
• Understanding the value of digits in a number (e.g., hundreds, tens, ones)
• Recognizing that the value of a digit changes based on its position (e.g., 4 in 400 vs. 4 in 40)
• Using place value to compare and order numbers

Number Patterns

• Recognizing and creating patterns using numbers, such as counting by 2s, 5s, 10s, etc.
• Identifying patterns in sequences, for example, 2, 5, 8, 11, 14
• Creating number patterns using shapes or colors to visually represent the pattern

Ordering Numbers

• Arranging numbers in a logical order, such as ordering from least to greatest, e.g., 3, 5, 7, 9
• Ordering numbers in reverse, from greatest to least, e.g., 9, 7, 5, 3
• Comparing numbers using greater than (>), less than (<), and equal to (=) symbols

Converting Fractions to Decimals

• Divide the numerator by the denominator to convert a fraction to a decimal.
• Fractions can be converted to decimals using long division or a calculator.
• Decimals can be terminating or repeating.

Characteristics of Decimals

• Terminating decimals have a finite number of digits (e.g., 1/2 = 0.5).
• Repeating decimals have an infinite repeating pattern (e.g., 1/3 = 0.333...).

Real-World Applications of Decimals

• Interest rates can be represented as decimals (e.g., 25% = 0.25).
• Investment returns can be represented as decimals (e.g., 12.5% = 0.125).
• Prices can be represented as decimals (e.g., \$0.50).

Science and Engineering

• Precise measurements can be represented as decimals (e.g., 12.5 cm = 0.125 m).
• Mathematical calculations can be represented as decimals (e.g., πr^2 = 3.14r^2 approximately).

Cooking and Recipes

• Ingredient proportions can be represented as decimals (e.g., 0.25 cups of sugar).
• Cooking times can be represented as decimals (e.g., 2.5 hours).

Health and Medicine

• Medication dosages can be represented as decimals (e.g., 0.5 mg of medication).
• Medical measurements can be represented as decimals (e.g., 120.5 mmHg blood pressure reading).
