Math Expectations for Telling Time
Grade 3
Students in Grade 3 are expected to read time using analog clocks to the nearest 5 minutes and digital clocks to the nearest minute. They need to be able to represent time in 12-hour notation. The students need to estimate, read and record positive temperatures to the nearest degree as well as identify benchmarks for freezing, cold, cool, warm, hot, and boiling temperatures as they relate to water and air. Students are expected to solve problems involving relationships between minutes and hours, hours and days, days and weeks, and weeks and years using a variety of tools.

​Grade 4
​Students in Grade 4 are expected to estimate, measure (using analog clocks) and represent time intervals to the nearest minute. They need to estimate and determine elapsed time, with and without using a time line, given the durations of events expressed five- minute intervals hours, days, weeks, months or years. Students need to be able to solve problems involving the relationships between years and decades, and between decades and centuries.

 Math Expectations for Number Patterns
Grade 3
Students in Grade 3 are expected to identify, extend and create repeating patterns involving two attributes; identify and describe number patterns involving addition, subtraction, and multiplication. They need to be able to extend repeating growing and shrinking number patterns. Students need to create number patterns involving addition and subtraction based on a pattern rule and represent geometric patterns using number sequences.

Grade 4
Students in Grade 4 are expected to extend, describe, and create repeating, growing, and shrinking number patterns, including alternating pattern rules. They need to connect each term in a growing or shrinking pattern with its term number (i.e. in T-Tables) and create a number pattern involving addition, subtraction, or multiplication that has been described in a pattern rule. They need to be able to make predictions related to repeating geometric and number patterns.
