During this unit, students work on becoming fluent when solving whole number addition, subtraction, and multiplication problems and proficient when solving whole number division problems. Estimating to determine solutions for all four operations becomes embedded within one and two step real-world contexts to help determine solutions. The number set for multiplication grows to three-digit by two-digit factors while the number set for division becomes four-digit dividends by two-digit divisors. Using the standard algorithm becomes a focus for both multiplication and division. Students use computational estimation strategies to determine the reasonableness of solutions.
