Week 5 9/18

Parents: Welcome back and I hope that you and your family fared well during the hurricane. 
We will be starting division this week, which is not taught at all in the way in which we learned in school (that is now a 6th grade standard). Here are some examples of ways that we do division in 4th grade, if you would like me to sit down with you and show you how these work, I’d love to.

Also, you can check out Khan Academy and their video using this link :

Subject AreaMath/Science/SS
Grade Level4
Week #5
Unit of InstructionPartial Quotient Division/Space Research&Exploration&Technology/Constitution
Standard(s) Taught

Math:
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. MAFS.4.NBT.2.6

Science:
Investigate and report the effects of space research and exploration on the economy and culture of Florida. SC.4.E.5.5

SS:
SS.4.C.1.1 Describe how Florida’s constitution protects the rights of citizens and provides for the structure, function, and purposes of state government. 

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Math:
• use manipulatives or drawings of rectangular arrays and/or array models to solve and explain division problems that involve the division of a multi-digit dividend (with up to four digits) by a one-digit divisor. E.g., Rectangular Array (Concrete) Rectangular Array (Representational) Area Model
• solve division of a multi-digit dividend (with up to four digits) by a one-digit divisor using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division, and record the calculation using equations.
NOTE: Use of the standard algorithm for division is a Grade 6 standard.

Science:
 • read and discuss how the effects of space research and exploration has created advances in science that have impacted the economy and culture of Florida (e.g., medical technology, transportation, agriculture, and industrial productivity).
• research products that were generated specifically for space but have now found purpose for public use (e.g., freeze-dried food, memory foam, mylar blanket). 

SS:
• describe the purpose of the Florida constitution.
• explain how Florida’s constitution protects citizens’ rights.
• show how elements of the Florida constitution guide the structure, function and purposes of state government.
