Common Core State Standards alignment
Grade 4 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Number & Operations - Fractions > Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.C.6
Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.
Grade 4 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Number & Operations - Fractions > Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NF.C.7
Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual model.
Grade 5 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Number & Operations in Base Ten > Understand the place value system > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NBT.A.3 > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NBT.A.3.A
Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form, e.g., 347.392 = 3 × 100 + 4 × 10 + 7 × 1 + 3 × (1/10) + 9 × (1/100) + 2 × (1/1000).
Grade 5 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Number & Operations in Base Ten > Understand the place value system > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NBT.A.3 > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NBT.A.3.B
Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
Grade 5 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Number & Operations in Base Ten > Understand the place value system > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NBT.A.4
Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place.
