# Week 4 9-5

Parents–This week we’re starting multiplication. We will not be doing traditional multiplication. Please watch the video below to find out how we do multiplication this year (it’s called area model, with box method, we just make all of the boxes the same size)

If you would like me to go over this with you, I’d be glad to help. Division is coming next week which will also be a completely different way of dividing then what you have learned in the past.

Teacher Melanie Berube Math/Science/SS 4 4 Multiplication Partial Product and Box_Area Method/Moon Phases/Physical&Cultural Features of FL
Standard(s) Taught

Math:
Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models. MAFS.4.NBT.2.5

Science:
Describe the changes in the observable shape of the moon over the course of about a month. SC.4.E.5.2

SS:
Identify physical features of Florida. SS.4.G.1.1
Locate and label cultural features on a Florida map. SS.4.G.1.2

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math:
• use manipulatives or drawings of rectangular arrays and/or array models to solve and explain multi-digit multiplication problems that extend to 4-digit by 1-digit or up to 2-digit by 2-digit.
• solve multi-digit multiplication problems that extend to 4-digit by 1-digit or up to 2-digit by 2-digit using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations, and record the calculation using equations.

Science:
• recognize that the moon does not produce its own light; it reflects light from the sun.
• recognize that the moon revolves around (orbits) Earth in about 28 days as Earth revolves around (orbits) the sun.
• describe the changes (patterns) that occur to the observable shape of the moon over the course of about a month that have been recorded in a science notebook.
• predict the changes in the observable shape of the moon starting at any point in the cycle.
• sequence moon patterns.
• compare observable shapes of the moon.
• explain that the moon’s physical shape does not actually change.
• explain that Earth’s rotation on its axis causes the moon to appear as though it is moves across the sky in the day or night sky.

SS:
• identify and locate Florida’s major physical features, including major bodies of water and areas with major islands on a state map such as Florida Keys
• locate, label, and discuss Florida’s cultural features on a Florida map (e.g., state capital-Tallahassee, major cities, sites of important historical events, major tourist attractions).
