4th Grade Mathematics


Fourth graders use their knowledge of place value to generalize to 1,000,000 and learn to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.  They fluently add and subtract using the standard algorithm and multiply and divide with multi-digit numbers.  Fourth graders extend understanding of fractions to include equivalence, ordering and simple decimal notation.  Students measure angles and classify geometric shapes by lines (parallel, perpendicular, etc.) and angles (right, acute, obtuse, etc.).

Specifically, your child will…

Operations and Algebraic Thinking

·         Use addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with whole numbers to solve word problems

·         Learn about factors and multiples

·         Factors of 24: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12

·         Multiples of 4:  4, 8, 12, 16, 20

·         Make and describe patterns with objects and numbers

Number and Base Ten Operations

·         Understand and use place value to generalize to 1,000,000

·         Expanded form:  6783 = 6000 + 700 + 80 + 3

·         Compute with multi-digit numbers

·         Solve problems involving using multiplication of multi-digit by two-digit numbers

·         Divide multi-digit numbers by one-digit divisor

·         Round multi-digit numbers to any place

Number and Operations – Fractions

·         Build understanding of equivalent fractions and ordering fractions

·         Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators by making common denominators

·         Add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers with like denominators

·         Understand the decimal notation for fractions

·         Compare decimals

Measurement and Data

·         Solve problems using measurement conversions
