FOURTH GRADE MATH OVERVIEW

Operations and Algebraic Thinking, OA
  • Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems
  • Gain familiarity with factors and multiples
  • Generate and analyze patterns
Number and Operations in Base Ten, NBT
  • Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers
  • Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic

Number and Operations - Fractions, NF

  • Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering
  • Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on
    whole numbers
  • Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions

Measurement and Data, MD

  • Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of
    measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit
  • Represent and interpret data
  • Geometric measurement: understand concepts of angle and measure angles

Geometry, G

  • Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles
