Math in Focus Kindergarten-Fifth Grade Implementation Downers Grove Grade School District 58

Introduction “Singapore math” is the term used to refer to the mathematics curriculum used in Singapore. For over 15 years, Singapore has consistently scored at the top of international mathematics comparison studies. Its unique approach to teaching math — which focuses on problem solving, deep understanding, and model drawing — has helped Singapore students excel, and now U.S. students have the same opportunity to benefit from this proven curriculum! Math in Focus® is the U.S. edition of Singapore’s most widely used program. It teaches the same content as traditional mathematics programs — just in a way that emphasizes understanding and flexible thinking. Math in Focus will teach your children both how and why math works. This deep understanding means that they will be better able to use math in real-life situations.

Framework

Bar Modeling The bar modeling method is a common diagrammatic problem-solving tool that is introduced at the primary level and can be used to solve both arithmetic and algebraic problems.

Learning Targets Kindergarten
Counts to tell the number of objects Identifies numbers Counts sequentially Prints numbers 0 – 20 legibly Compares numbers Understands addition and subtraction Composes and decomposes numbers 11-19 Describes and compares measurable attributes Classifies objects & counts the number of objects in each category Identifies, Compares, Contrasts and Creates shapes

Learning Targets First Grade
Extends the counting sequence Understands place value Uses place value understanding and properties of operations to add and subtract Represents and solves word problems involving addition and subtraction Solves addition and subtraction problems Adds and subtracts within 20 Works with addition and subtraction equations Understands geometric shapes and attributes Measures length using non-standard units Represents and interprets data Tells and writes time

Learning Targets Second Grade
Uses place value understanding and properties of operations to add and subtract Understands place value Represents and solves problems involving addition and subtraction Works with equal groups of objects to gain foundations for multiplication Adds and subtracts within 20 Understands geometric shapes and their attributes Represents and interprets data Measures and estimates lengths in standard units Relates addition and subtraction to length Demonstrates understanding of time Recognizes, compares, and solves problems involving money

Learning Targets Third Grade
Uses place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic Represents and solves problems involving multiplication and division Understands properties of multiplication and the relationship between multiplication and division Multiplies and divides within 100 Solves problems involving the four operations, and identifies and explains patterns in arithmetic Develops understanding of fractions as numbers   (Use denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8) Reasons with shapes and their attributes Solves problems involving measurement and estimation of intervals of time, liquid volumes, and masses of objects Represents and interprets data Understands concepts of area and relates area to multiplication and to addition Recognizes perimeter as an attribute of plane figures and distinguishes between linear and area measures

Learning Targets Fourth Grade
Generalizes place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers Uses place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic Uses the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems Gains familiarity with factors and multiples. Generates and analyzes patterns Extends understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering Applies and extends previous understanding of addition, subtraction, and multiplication with fractions Understands decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimals and fractions Draws and identifies lines and angles, and classifies shapes by properties of their lines and angles Solves problems involving measurement and conversions of measurements form a larger unit to a smaller unit Represents and interprets data Understands concepts of angle and measure angles

Learning Targets Fifth Grade
Performs operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths. Recognizes equivalent fractions as a strategy to add and subtract fractions. Analyzes previous knowledge to multiply and divide fractions. Generates and analyzes numerical expressions, patterns and relationships Identifies and analyzes geometric concepts. Interprets data and converts measurement units within a given measurement system.

Homework Homework will be assigned to students based on their individual needs. There will be times when students will have the same homework in one class, and there will be other times when it may vary based on the learning needs of each of the students in the class.

iPad App Grades 2, 3, 4 & 5 ONLY Allow your child to visualize even the most complex math word problems with Singapore Math, Bar Models. This activity uses the signature Singapore math method for problem solving and teaches children in Grades 2–5 how to visually represent word problems in a fun and interactive way. The problems align closely with the Math in Focus®: Singapore Math by Marshall Cavendish curriculum. These will be provided for all classroom and school iPad use.
