Other educational standards:
This resource supports math and science standards for grades 35. This assignment is based on the Virginia Standards of Learning Math3.9: The student will recall the multiplication and division facts through the nines table. Math3.10: The student will represent multiplication and division, using area and set models, and create and solve problems that involve multiplication of two whole numbers, one factor 99 or less and the second factor 5 or less. Math4.7: The student will find the product of two whole numbers when one factor has two digits or fewer and the other factor has three digits or fewer, using estimation and paper and pencil. For larger products (a twodigit numeral times a threedigit numeral), estimation and calculators will be used. Math5.3: The student will create and solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers, using paper and pencil, estimation, mental computation, and calculators. Math5.4: The student will find the sum, difference, and product of two numbers expressed as decimals through thousandths, using an appropriate method of calculation, including paper and pencil, estimation, mental computation, and calculators. Math5.5: The student, given a dividend of four digits or fewer and a divisor of two digits or fewer, will find the quotient and remainder. Math5.6: The student, given a dividend expressed as a decimal through thousandths and a singledigit divisor, will find the quotient. Sci3.8: The student will investigate and understand basic patterns and cycles occurring in nature. Key concepts include patterns of natural events (day and night, seasonal changes, phases of the moon, and tides), and animal and plant life cycles. Sci4.6: The student will investigate and understand how weather conditions and phenomena occur and can be predicted. Sci5.6: The student will investigate and understand characteristics of the ocean environment b) physical characteristics (depth, salinity, major currents).
