Unit 1 instructional time is focused on these priority standards:
5. NBT.3b. Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
5MD. 1. Convert among differentsized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multistep, real world problems.
5. NBT. 7. Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition/subtraction. Relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
 How do place values compare?
 What patterns can we identify in the places of numbers?
 How does the position of a number determine its value?
 What is the purpose of the decimal place?
