After the Mid-Module Assessment, the module shifts towards comparison of number, opening in Topic E with four lessons in which students consider, “Is there enough?” in a variety of contexts. Students explore and compare area by participating in everyday activities such as comparing two pieces of paper to see which one will allow them to make a bigger drawing. In lesson 16, students consider and establish that a square has enough space to fit a circle inside it, and then discover that the same square fits many little squares perfectly if they are arranged in rows. In Lesson 17, they work to see if there are enough forks for every plate, enough chairs for every child, and enough pails for every shovel. In Lessons 18 and 19, the language of enough shifts to the language of more than and fewer than. There are more forks than plates. There are fewer chairs than children. There are the same number of pails and shovels.
