In fourth grade math, students gain basic math knowledge in order to build a foundation for future learning. We are using the workshop model for math also in Investigations. Students use pictures, computation, math games and manipulatives to arrive at solutions to equations. These are some the math content areas that we will be learning this year.

bar graphs & line plots

comparing two sets of data

addition and subtraction facts & patterns with larger numbers

regrouping

multiplication of large numbers using break apart strategy

division of large numbers using break apart strategy

two equation story problems

fractions: addition, subtraction & multiplication

volume ( l x w x h)

coordinate grids

three-digit addition & subtraction

multiplication facts should be memorized in the first month

There is a lot of content this year. Parents, check newsletters for current math learning and instruction.
