Math in 4th Grade

In 4th grade math, students have the opportunity to build on the foundations of 3rd grade through introduction to more multi-step calculations and deeper conceptual understanding.  Students work together to problem-solve, complete projects, and develop their understandings and skills across three mathematical areas:
  • Developing understanding and fluency with multi-digit multiplication, and developing an understanding of dividing to find quotients involving multi-digit dividends
  • Developing an understanding of fraction equivalence, addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators, and multiplication of fractions by whole numbers
  • 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.

Concepts we focus on include:

  • Operations and Algebraic Thinking
  • Number and Operations in Base Ten
  • Number and Operations Fractions
  • Measurement and Data
  • Geometry
