The fourth grade math curriculum covers all the fourth grade standards.
Quarter 1 - We begin the year by reviewing the four operations. Students will learn to use the four operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic using place value understanding. This includes identifying factors and multiples and prime and composite numbers.
Quarter 2 - We will be comparing fractions, ordering them, and finding equivalent fractions and students will learn to add, subtract and multiply them. Next we learn to solve problems involving measurement and conversion of standard and metric measurements. Finally we learn to interpret data using graphs.
Quarter 3- Students will use decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal to fractions. Students will also learn to use place value understanding and properties of operations to solve multi-digit multiplication and long division problems. Students will also use this knowledge to solve multi-step word problems. Finally we will generalize and analyze patterns.
Quarter 4- We will continue solving problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements. Students will learn to draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles. They will also learn to understand geometric concepts and to measure angles.
