Intended Learning Outcomes for Third Through Sixth Grade Mathematics
The main intent of mathematics instruction is for students to value and use mathematics and reasoning skills to investigate and understand the world.
The Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) describe the skills and attitudes students should acquire as a result of successful mathematics instruction. They are an essential part of the Mathematics Core Curriculum and provide teachers with a standard for student learning in mathematics.
ILOs for mathematics:
Significant mathematics understanding occurs when teachers incorporate ILOs in planning mathematics instruction. The following are ideas to consider when planning instruction for students to acquire the ILOs:
By the end of grade three, students develop understandings of multiplication and division of whole numbers. They use properties to develop increasingly more sophisticated strategies to solve problems involving basic multiplication and division facts. They relate division to multiplication. Students understand fraction equivalence for simple fractions; they recognize that the size of a fractional part is relative to the size of the whole. They understand meanings of fractions to represent parts of a whole, parts of a set, or distances on a number line. They compare and order simple fractions by using models, benchmark fractions, or common denominators.
Students investigate, analyze, and classify two-dimensional shapes by their sides and angles. They decompose, combine, and transform polygons to understand properties of two-dimensional space and use those properties to solve problems. Students construct and analyze frequency tables, bar graphs, picture graphs, and line plots and use them to solve problems.
