Grade 4 Overview

View unit yearlong overview here

Unit 1 begins with extending place value understanding of multi-digit numbers, student understanding of multiplication, and the use of all four operations to solve word problems.  Unit 2 computes multi-digit whole numbers and generates equivalent fractions.  Unit 2 has two benchmarked standards: “Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm” [4.NBT.4] which is repeated in unit 3 and “Solve multi-step word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole number answers using the four operations …” [4.OA.3] which is repeated in units 3 and 4. 

In unit 3 students compare, decompose, and add and subtract fractions with like denominators (including mixed numbers).  Unit 4 extends the understanding of fractions to solve word problems including decimal notation.  In unit 5 decimals are compared (to hundredths) and used to measure geometric figures which students also classify by their attributes.
