RightStart Math Level C 1st Edition

number concepts to 10 000

Content is fully covered

• From lesson 101 ff multiples are studied extensively. Every day, students write out multiples and study patterns in the set of numbers. Students play games to learn the multiples.
• The use of benchmarks in computation is taught explicitly and practiced consistently through all levels.
4-digit numbers are added with answer to 12,000-15,000 (lessons 31-33). Roman numerals – during study of Roman numerals, numbers up to 4999 are studied, written in both forms. (lesson 15)
• RS continues to use manipulatives to study numbers even at this level to ensure that place value are solid. For example, when reviewing/practicing adding and subtracting of 4-digit numbers, students always initially use the abacus and base-ten cards to do their work before they move on to paper and pencil only.

decimals to hundredths

Content is partially covered:

• Decimals are not studied formally, but there is additional of amounts of money including decimals (ie lesson 94)

Supplementation Required

ordering and comparing fractions

Content is fully covered

• Fractions are studied from lesson 133 on: naming unit fractions, 3 divided by 4, naming fractions, fractions equalling 1, making 1 with 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, fraction problems, comparing fractions.
• Fractions are studied while doing geometry – over 5 lessons – dividing equilateral triangle into 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/8, 1/12, 1/6

addition and subtraction to 10 000

Content is fully covered

• RS continues to use manipulatives to study numbers even at this level to ensure that place value is solid. For example, when reviewing/practicing adding and subtracting of 4-digit numbers, students always initially use the abacus and base-ten cards (and place value cards if necessary) to do their work before they move on to paper and pencil only.
• To get an idea of the extent to which computational fluency is developed – mental computation of two 2-digit numbers is studied – “add the tens and then add the ones” – students practice this daily in Levels B and C. Students practice adding numbers such as 54+68 starting in level B. Additional strategies are taught and student is asked to use the one they find the most useful. Once it is taught, the addition of two-digit numbers is practiced daily in the oral warm-up exercises.

multiplication and division of two- or three-digit numbers by one-digit numbers

Content is fully covered

• In the warm-up of each lesson, (in the latter half of program ie Lesson 132) 2-digit or 3 digit numbers are multiplied by 1 digit numbers.
• The relationships between adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing are easily related because throughout the levels, part-whole circles are used for computation.

addition and subtraction of decimals to hundredths

Content is fully covered

• Addition of amounts of money including decimals (ie lesson 94 — \$35.15+ \$15.75 OR \$24.85 – \$15.75)

addition and subtraction facts to 20 (developing computational fluency)

Content is fully covered

• Addition, subtraction practice sheets and games are used to develop fluency with facts to 20
• Mental math strategies are reviewed, practiced and enforced continuously.

multiplication and division facts to 100 (introductory computational strategies)

Content is fully covered

• Multiples on a hundred chart, building a multiplication chart, multiplication memory game, sum rummy game, repeated addition, commutative property, problems, when area is studied – multiplication is discussed and used. From lesson 116 – 150, there are lessons practicing specific multiples and then those are practiced in each warm-up of every lesson from then on. Every day, students are writing out multiples and studying them for patterns. The multiples 2s to 9s are studied.

increasing and decreasing patterns, using tables and charts

Content is fully covered

• Patterns within the addition facts are reviewed by constructing an addition table over several days. Venn diagrams are used (lessons 1+4+7). Patterns seen when subtracting consecutive numbers and consecutive even or odd numbers are studied further by entering them in a subtraction table (lesson49). Temperature is graphed everyday for a month (lesson 8ff). Doubles and near doubles are noted on the addition table (lesson9).Venn diagram exploring even/odd numbers (why can’t any numbers be in middle/common area?). Students are encouraged to keep track of their addition practice using a graph. Venn diagram used to compare multiples (lesson16) and more…

algebraic relationships among quantities

Content is fully covered

• Part-whole circles are used to solve problems where there is an unknown. Includes two-step problems starting in lesson 94.
• Completed orally.

one-step equations with an unknown number, using all operations

Content is fully covered

• Equations with unknowns at the start and in various positions of the equation are practiced starting in Level B.

how to tell time with analog and digital clocks, using 12- and 24-hour clocks

Content is fully covered

regular and irregular polygons

Content is fully covered

• Level C – Students use a t-square and 30-60 triangles to: draw equilateral triangles, divide equil triangles, draw hexagons, draw a 6-sided star, draw a star in a hexagon. Tangrams are explored – lesson 146-149

perimeter of regular and irregular shapes

Content is fully covered

• Student solves problems involving perimeter in both levels B and C. In level C, centimeters are used. Both regular and irregular shapes.

line symmetry

Content is fully covered

one-to-one correspondence and many-to-one correspondence, using bar graphs and pictographs

Content is fully covered

• Students use a bar graph to record progress in addition practice (lesson 12). Students record daily temperature on a bar graph (lesson 8).

probability experiments

Supplementation Required

financial literacy — monetary calculations, including making change with amounts to 100 dollars and making simple financial decisions

Content is partially covered:

• RS Level C – student reviews penny, nickel, dime. The quarter and dollar are taught. Practice combining/adding coins. Practice counting by 25s to 200/\$2. Games like “Money War” are played to practice adding coins. Play store to practice making change from \$1. Trading from cents to dollars. Writing and reading money amounts using decimal points. Adding and subtracting dollars and cents. Word problems (lesson 42ff).
