Grade 4 Math Standards Resources

It is recommended that teachers review activities and read the associated directions and/or lesson plan ideas prior to using them with their students. In some cases, the activities are very open-ended and are best used in conjunction with paper/pencil activities or when students are paired and working on a single computer. If the directions and/or lesson plans are not obvious, a link is provided within the description of the resource.

It is essential that these standards be addressed in contexts that promote problem solving, reasoning, communication, making connections, and designing and analyzing representations.

4OA: Operations and Algebraic Thinking: Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems.

4OA.1

Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.

4.NBT Number and Operations in Base Ten2: Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers.

4. NBT. 1

Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.

4.NBT Number and Operations in Base Ten2: Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.

4. NBT. 6

Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

4.NF Number and Operations—Fractions: Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers.

4. NF. 3a

Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.a. Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.

4. NF. 3b

Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.b. Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 ; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8 ; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8.

4. NF.4a

Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.a. Understand a fraction a/b as a multiple of 1/b. For example, use a visual fraction model to represent 5/4 as the product 5 × (1/4), recording the conclusion by the equation 5/4 = 5 × (1/4).

4. NF.4b

Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.b. Understand a multiple of a/b as a multiple of 1/b, and use this understanding to multiply a fraction by a whole number. For example, use a visual fraction model to express 3 × (2/5) as 6 × (1/5), recognizing this product as 6/5. (In general, n × (a/b) = (n × a)/b.)

4.NF Number and Operations—Fractions: Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions.

4.NF.5

Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100.4 For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.

4. NF.7

Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual model.

4.MD Measurement and Data: Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.

4. MD. 1

Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), ...

Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
