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
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.
