Common Core Standards

  • CC.5.R-F.4 Read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension.
  • CC.5.R-I.2 Determine two or more main ideas of a text and explain how they are supported by key details; summarize the text.
  • CC.5.OA.3 Generate two numerical patterns using two given rules. Identify apparent relationships between corresponding terms. Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 0, and given the rule “Add 6” and the starting number 0, generate terms in the resulting sequences, and observe that the terms in one sequence are twice the corresponding terms in the other sequence. Explain informally why this is so.
