Fourth Grade instructional time will focus on three critical areas:
(1) developing an understanding of and fluency with multidigit multiplication, and developing an understanding of division to find and interpret quotients involving multidigit dividends;
(2) developing an understanding of fraction equivalence, addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators, and multiplication of fractions by whole numbers;
(3) understanding that geometric figures can be analyzed and classified based on their properties, such as having parallel sides, perpendicular sides, particular angle measures, and symmetry.
Mathematical Practices

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

Keep trying!

I solve problems without giving up.

Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

Think about math!

I think about numbers in many ways.

Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

Talk about math!

I explain my thinking and try to understand.

Model with mathematics.

Model math!

I show my work in a variety of ways.

Use appropriate tools strategically.

Use math tools!

I use math tools and tell why I chose them.

Attend to precision.

Check your work!

I work carefully and check my work for accuracy.

Look for and make use of structure.

Look for patterns!

I use what I know to solve new problems.

Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Look for shortcuts!

I solve problems by looking for rules and patterns.
