Document# Excerpt 14: Connections from Operations & Algebraic Thinking to Number & Operations--Fractions and Number & Operations in Base Ten in Grades 3-5 (Page 33)

Progressions for the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics## Draft K Progression on Counting & Cardinality and K-5 Progression on Operations & Algebraic Thinking

Description: One of a series of documents describing the progression of a topic across several grade levels, informed both by research on children's development and by the structure of mathematics. Students extend their whole number work with adding and subtracting and multiplying and dividing situations to decimal numbers and fractions. The operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division continue to be used in the same way in these problem situations when they are extended to fractions and decimals (although making these extensions is not automatic or easy for all students).
