Module Booklets

Module 1: Number Sense and Quantity

This module focuses on building a conceptual understanding of basic mathematical ideas which will enhance the student’s number sense, rather than a focus on algorithms. The unit begins with the use of whole numbers followed by fractions, decimals, and integers through the lens of problem solving. Students will use a variety of strategies and manipulative tools.

Note: The files from Quick Check I to Lesson 11: Dividing Fractions with Models were formerly labeled Days 1-13.

Module 2: Arithmetic to Algebra

This module focuses on the creation of a connection between arithmetic skills and operations in algebra. Students will draw conclusions from computation with specific numbers in order to build generalizations about properties that can be used for numbers and variables. Students will interpret and apply the properties of exponents and use concrete models to investigate square roots and cube roots. The module lays the groundwork for modules 3, 4, and 5.

Module 3: Proportional Reasoning

This module focuses on the use of modeling to explain equivalent ratios and to understand real-world rate, ratio, and percentage problems. Students will derive slope using similar triangles and interpret slope using unit rates.

Module 4: Equations and Inequalities

This module focuses on building understanding of concepts of variables, equations, and inequalities. Systems of equations, solutions of equations, and inequalities will be interpreted in relationship to real-world applications. Multi-variable formulas will be solved for specific variables using algebraic operations.

Module 5: Quantitative Reasoning with Functions

This module focuses on functions and the characteristics of functions such as domain, range, and rates of change. The y-intercept form of linear functions will be used to graph lines and to compare the rates of change of functions.
