**Week 1: Placement value of numbers up to millions and up to hundredths for decimal placement; converting decimals up to hundredths into fractions and simplifying.
**(ex: What is the thousands place of 123,456?; 0.5 = 5/10 or ½)

**Week 2: Concepts of negative numbers using a number line; order of operations using one-digit numbers and excluding the use of exponents.
**(ex: 4 x 6 + 7 – 3 = ? )

**Week 3: Factoring numbers using the factor tree; understanding prime numbers vs. composite numbers.
**(ex: 24 = 4 x 6 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3)

**Week 4: Introduction of algebra using variables and math symbols; explanation of how variables represent an unknown number; practice using one-step equations.
**(ex: solve for x if 4x = 16)

**Week 5: Continuance of algebra concepts; practice using two-step equations.
**(ex: solve for x if 3x – 5 = 13)

**Week 6: Understanding perimeter and area of basic shapes including squares and rectangles; emphasis on answers of measure in correct units for perimeter and area.
**(ex: Perimeter = 2L + 2W and Area = L x W)

**Week 7: Understanding which mathematical approach is the best way to approach a problem including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
**(ex: Sally went to the store and saw a doll she wanted for $5 and a bracelet for $7. If Sally had $15 in her pocket, how much change would she receive if she bought the following items?)
