## 5.OA-Operations and Algebraic thinking

According to, Jared Myracle (Common Core Standards for Parents),

*The primary emphasis in the operations and algebraic thinking domain for grades (k-5) is to develop comfort and fluency when using numbers to add, subtract, multiply, and divide. Numbers emerge as tools that students can use to identify and represent quantities, relationships, and patterns. Starting with understanding how to take apart and put together numbers within 10 and understanding relationships between parts and wholes, students build upon these skills until they’re comfortable with multiplying and dividing up to 100, adding and subtracting decimals fluently, and multiplying and dividing decimals to the hundredths place.*

This leads to the application of these skills in finding missing parts, solving problems with multiple steps, finding the solution to numerical expressions, and using these concepts to determine patterns and represent data on a coordinate plane.
