SMCPS uses Bridges in Mathematics, 2nd Edition, as a primary resource for teaching your child the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.

• understand factors and multiples, e.g., 1,2,4,5,10, and 20 are all factors of 20, and 20 is a multiple of each of those numbers
• understand that a prime number has only 2 factors—1 and itself, while a composite number has more than 2 factors
• multiply multi-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations
• divide 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and the relationship between multiplication and division
• read, write, and compare multi-digit numbers and round multi-digit numbers to any place
• add and subtract multi-digit numbers accurately and efficiently
• recognize and generate equivalent fractions
• compare two fractions with different numerators and denominators
• add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers with like denominators
• multiply a fraction by a whole number
• write fractions with denominators of 10 or 100 in decimal notation
• compare decimal numbers with digits to the hundredths place
• know the relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units, including metric length, metric mass, customary weight, metric volume, and time
• use formulas for area and perimeter of a rectangle to solve problems
• measure and sketch angles with a protractor
• classify 2-D shapes
• identify and draw lines of symmetry
