· Students round whole numbers through millions an decimals through thousandths
· Students use rounding and compatible numbers to estimate sums and differences of whole numbers and decimals.
· Students will add and subtract decimals in tenths and hundredths using models.
· Students use pictures and write equations to help them solve problems.

Commutative Property of Addition – The order of addends can be changed and the sum remains the same
Associative Property of Addition- Addends can be regrouped and the sum remains the same
compatible numbers- Numbers that are easy to compute with mentally
compensation- Adjusting one number of an operation to make computations easier and balancing the adjustment by changing the other number.
rounding- A process that determines which multiple of 10, 100, 1000
