My Backpack

4th Grade , Math

We will be focusing on Number and Operations in Base Ten during the third quarter. This means students should be able to find whole number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors. We will also begin the standard Number and Operations Fractions. This involves finding factor pairs, determining whether one number is a multiple of another, and identifying prime and composite numbers. Students should also be able to add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers with common denominators. Students should also be able to extend their understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering. Number and Operations Fractions also includes students being able to multiply fractions by whole numbers. They should understand decimal notation for fractions, and be able to compare decimal fractions.
Parents:  Please continue to help your child with two digiti multiplication by using the Standard Algorithm. (Standard Algorithm is the way you learned it as a child ). We will continue to work on this concept in school, but it is helpful if you provide your child with parctice at home as well! Please also help your child with long division. Ask your child what "Does McDonald's Sell Cheeseburgers" means.
