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 six, students have mastered the four arithmetic operations with whole numbers, positive rational numbers, positive decimals, and positive and negative integers; they accurately compute and solve problems. They find prime factorizations, least common multiples, and greatest common factors. They create, evaluate, and simplify expressions, and solve equations involving two operations and a single variable. They solve problems involving an unknown angle in a triangle or quadrilateral, and use properties of complementary and supplementary angles. Students know about π as the ratio between the circumference and the diameter of a circle and solve problems using the formulas for the circumference and area of a circle. Students analyze, draw conclusions, and make predictions based upon data and apply basic concepts of probability.
