Comparing and Ordering Whole Numbers
Less Than: Not as many , <
EX: 52 < 57

Greater Than: There are more, >
EX: 25 > 19

Equal to: The same amount , =
4 + 3 = 3 + 4
Compare: to tell how items are the same
Contrast: to tell how items are different

Patterns:
Number Pattern: a group of numbers that follows a rule

EX: 20   25   30   35   40   45
Estimation
Estimate: a close guess
Rounding: to the nearest 10, 100, ….etc.

Rounding Rules:
Look at the digit to the right of the one you are rounding.
If the number is 0-4 round down to zero
If the number is 5 or more, round up 1.

EX: Round 543 to the nearest 10.
The number in the 10’s place is 4. The number to the right is 3. Three is between 0 and 4 so it rounds down to zero.
The number 543 rounded to the nearest 10 is 540.

EX: Round 678 to the nearest 10.
The number in the 10’s place is 7. The number to the right is 8. 8 is greater than 5, so it rounds up one. The number 678 rounded to the nearest ten is 680.

Addition: to combine 2 or more numbers to find the sum or total
Subtraction: a way of taking one number away from another to find the difference
Difference: The answer to a subtraction problem.
Minuend: the number you are subtracting from
Subtrahend: the number being subtracted

Telling Time:
Clock: a device used to measure time
Analog clock: a clock using hands to point out the time
Digital Cock: a clock that is electric and shows the numbers as lights
Hour: 60 minutes long ….is shown using the short hand on an analog clock
Minute: 60 seconds long….shown using the long hand on an analog clock
A.M.: is written for time from midnight to noon
P.M.: is written for times from noon to midnight
Noon: 12:00 in the daytime
Midnight:12:00 at night
Elapsed Time: the time that passes from the start of an activity to the end of the activity

 1 hour 60 minutes ½ hour 30 minutes ¼ hour 15 minutes ¾ hour 45 minutes

1 Kilogram = 1,000 grams
A paperclip = 1 gram
1 pair of shoes = 1 kilogram

Abbreviations:
Kilogram = kg
Gram = g

Capacity
Capacity: how much a container can hold
Metric Units of Capacity
1 liter (L) = 1,000 milliliters (ml)

Standard Units of Measurement
