 # Math in a Nutshell Add and subtract double digits and columns; find missing numbers; understand properties; and work with money. ### Algebra

Find and study patterns; manipulate variables to solve equations; become familiar with properties, ordered pairs, and inequalities. ### Algebra

Work with variables and positive and negative numbers; balance equations; understand properties and the vocabulary of algebra. ### Data Analysis and Probability

Reinforce probability and provide practice in organizing data graphically. ### Fraction Concepts

Students will learn terms, simplify fractions, find equivalent fractions, compare and add mixed numbers and so much more. ### Fractions and Decimals

Find and use equivalent fractions; understand decimal place value; estimate, add, subtract, and multiply using fractions and decimals. Become familiar with vocabulary; work with polygons, planes, angles, solids, and symmetry; draw tessellations; take measurements. Thanks to this comprehensive kit, area, volume, the language of geometry and 3 kinds of symmetry are no longer a mystery. Measure with non-customary units; use a ruler to measure and compare in inches and centimeters; measure perimeter, area, and weight. Students will tackle activities focusing on surface area, mass, perimeter, volume, customary and metric units, and even non-standard units of measure. ### Metric Tools

Students master the metric system using metric tools to measure distance and length, capacity and volume, mass, and temperature. ### Money

Introduces skip-counting in addition, create a non-customary money system; record money values; make different coin combinations, and make change for a "store". ### Multiplication and Division

Use a multiplication chart; multiply up to 3 single-digit numbers; divide to find quotients with no remainders;learn mental math strategies. ### Probability

Students learn about fair and unfair games, population samples, combinations and compound probability. Your students will learn how to search for patterns in data, organize information, eliminate unnecessary information, draw pictures, and build models. Your students will learn how to search for patterns in data, organize information, eliminate unnecessary information, draw pictures, and build models. ### Ratio, Proportion, and Percent

Visualize percentages, create/recognize proportional figures; use ratios; measure rates; find equivalent ratios;estimate percentage of areas and numbers. ### Time

Students do calendar math, tell and show time on analog clocks, learn AM and PM, work with elapsed time, create a sand timer and pendulum.
