    Assessment limit: Use whole numbers (0 - 1,000,000)
  4. Compare, order, and describe whole numbers
    Assessment limit: Use no more than 4 whole numbers with or without using the symbols (<, > , =) and whole numbers (0 - 1,000,000)

Indicator

  • 2. Apply knowledge of fractions and decimals
Objectives
  1. Read, write, and represent proper fractions of a single region using symbols, words, and models
    Assessment limit: Use denominators 6, 8, and 10
  2. Read, write, or represent proper fractions of a set which has the same number of items as the denominator using symbols, words, and models
    Assessment limit: Use denominators of 6, 8, and 10 with sets of 6, 8, and 10, respectively
  3. Find equivalent fractions
  4. Read, write, and represent mixed numbers using symbols, words, and models
  5. Read, write, and represent decimals using symbols, words and models

  6. Express decimals in expanded form
    Assessment limit: Use no more than 2 decimal places and numbers (0-100)
  7. Compare and order fractions and mixed numbers with or without using the symbols (<, >, or =)
    Assessment limit: Use like denominators and no more than 3 numbers (0-20)
  8. Compare, order, and describe decimals with or without using the symbols (<, >, or =)
    Assessment limit: Use no more than 3 decimals with no more than 2 decimal places and numbers (0 – 100)

Indicator

  • 3. Apply knowledge of money
Objectives
  1. Compare the value of sets of mixed currency
    Assessment limit: Use 2 sets of mixed currency and money ($0 - $100)
  2. Determine the change from $100

Topic

B. Number Theory

Indicator

Objectives
  1. Identify and use divisibility rules
    Assessment limit: Use the rules for 2, 5, or 10 with whole numbers (0 – 1000)
  2. Identify factors
    Assessment limit: Use whole numbers (0 – 24)
  3. Identify multiples
    Assessment limit: Use the first 5 multiples of any single digit whole number

Topic

C. Number Computation

Indicator

  • 1. Analyze number relations and compute
Objectives
  1. Add whole numbers
    Assessment limit: Use up to 3 addends with no more than 4 digits in each addend and whole numbers (0 - 10,000)
  2. Subtract whole numbers
    Assessment limit: Use a minuend and subtrahend with no more than 4 digits in each and whole numbers (0 – 9999)
  3. Multiply whole numbers
    Assessment limit: Use a one 1-digit factor by up to a 3-digit factor using whole numbers (0 – 1000)
  4. Divide whole numbers
    Assessment limit: Use up to a 3-digit dividend by a 1-digit divisor and whole numbers with no remainders (0 - 999)
  5. Add and subtract proper fractions and mixed numbers
    Assessment limit: Use 2 proper fractions with a single digit like denominators, 2 mixed numbers with single digit like denominators, or a whole number and a proper fraction with a single digit denominator and numbers (0 – 20)
  6. Add 2 decimals
    Assessment limit: Use the same number of decimal places but no more than 2 decimal places and no more than 4 digits including monetary notation and numbers (0 – 100)
  7. Subtract decimals
    Assessment limit: Use the same number of decimal places but no more than 2 decimal places and no more than 4 digits including monetary notation and numbers (0 – 100)

Indicator

Objectives
  1. Determine the approximate sum and difference of 2 numbers
    Assessment limit: Use no more than 2 decimal places in each and numbers (0 – 100)
  2. Determine the approximate product or quotient of 2 numbers
    Assessment limit: Use a 1-digit factor with the other factor having no more than 2-digits or a 1-digit divisor and no more than a 2-digit dividend and whole numbers (0 – 1000)

Note: Highlighted assessment limits will be tested in the no calculator section of MSA. In the assessment limit, (0-10) or (-10 to 10) means all numbers in the problem or the answer will fall within the range of 0 to 10 (including endpoints) or -10 to 10 (including endpoints), respectively. All content standards are tested in MSA but not all objectives. Objectives that have an assessment limit are tested on MSA. Objectives without an assessment limit are not tested on MSA.
