6.1  Recognize when an estimate is reasonable in measurements (e.g., closest inch).


Algebra and Functions

1.0  Students model, represent, and interpret number relationships to create and solve problems involving addition and subtraction:

1.1  Use the communicative and associative rules to simplify mental calculations and to check results.
