EDUCATION STANDARDS

NC Standard Course of Study:

 R1- Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text (in our case follow written instructions to complete activities and experiments and make conclusions).

R7 -Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words (in our case participate in hands-on activities and experiments that result in observations and conclusions).

R10 -Read and understand complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently, connecting prior knowledge and experiences to text (in our case science and technical writing).

SL1 – Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively (in our case working in groups, sharing ideas and communicating ideas and findings with others).

SL2 – Integrate and evaluate information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally (in our case participation in labs and programs where ideas and questions are presented using various media).

SL4 – Present information, findings, and supporting evidence such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience (in our case working in groups, sharing ideas and communicating ideas and findings with others).

NC Essential Standards:

NC.1.OA.1 Represent and solve addition and subtraction word problems, within 20, with unknowns, by using objects, drawings, and
equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, when solving:
• Add to/Take from-Change Unknown
• Put together/Take Apart-Addend Unknown
• Compare-Difference Unknown

NC.1.OA.3 Apply the commutative and associative properties as strategies for solving addition problems.

NC.1.OA.4 Solve an unknown-addend problem, within 20, by using addition strategies and/or changing it to a subtraction problem

NC.1.MD.3 Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks.

NC.1.OA.7 Apply understanding of the equal sign to determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true.

NC.2.OA.2 Demonstrate fluency with addition and subtraction, within 20, using mental strategies.

NC.2.MD.7 Tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m
